The alphabetic array of related terms is useful in determining the frequency of specific ideas.  High frequency ideas (central & related terms) denote those considered by the authors to be most important in describing the topic.  Low frequency ideas may represent emerging or fading attributes.

The frequency array is useful in developing idea maps showing higher frequency ideas.  This offers a rapid way to build new descriptions of the topic bypassing the traditional retrieval, triaging, and extracting of data.  Those tasks were performed by the software in building the idea database.
