Categorizing Vocabularies

Postby Monox D. I-Fly » Sat 24 Oct 2015 3:29 pm

In my workplace, I was asked to make a German-English glossary which is categorized by the theme. So far what I have done:
- Directions
- Days
- Months
- Seasons
- Locations
- Buildings
- Weather
- Color
- Daily Tools and Furnitures
- Clothes and Accessories
- Occupations
- Animals
- Food and Beverage
- Tastes
- Flowers
- Metal
- Numbers
- Mathematical Operation
- Measurements
- Units
- Shapes
- Solid figures
- Sky Objects
- Punctuations
- Zodiacs
- Animal Body Parts
- Parts of Plants
- Abbreviations
- Vehicles
- Sports
- Musics
- Body Parts
- Office Tools
- Vehicle Parts
Problem is, it still didn't reach the amount of target page. And we can't add anything into the existing category since they have been layouted in the book. Do you have any suggestions what new categories should I add?

You could add:

- Greetings
- Cognates between English and German
- Letters of the alphabet
- Terms of endearment
- Computer terms

I hope this helps! :D
