Abstract
Based on a paper presentend to the Documentation Research and Training Centre 'Seminar on classification and indexing in social sciences', Bangalore. An analysis of a detailed survey on facet-analysed subject strings in the field of social sciences. Subject strings of 4 typers were administered as a stratified sample of responses to identify the gaps in semantic connotation of terms. This survey has helped to idetify the possible aberrations in the semantic connotations due to the presence or absence of terms. It was found that use of prepositions, conjunctions and other role indicating terms gives semantic clarity. The syntax of speciator terms may have to be varied according to the respondent groups. It was found that if the number of component terms in a subject string increases beyond a certain limit it gives rise to problems in interpretation of ideas. This indicates a break-even point for formulating subject headings
