The information on lexical density was added to most terms in the dictionary, by calculating the average score of lexical density in which the target terms are used, using the text samples in the Balanced Corpus of Contemporary Written Japanese Ver.1.0 (BCCWJ). For instance, the score for “kanyo” (significant) is higher than that of “taisetsu” (important). In addition, the information on subject-matters was added to most terms in the dictionary, using the frequency data according to the Decimal Classification. For instance, the data shows that the term “jakki” (causes a negative result) is typically used in “shizenkagaku” (natural science) while it is not frequently used in “geijutsu, bijutsu” (Arts).
