The many succeeding editions of Roget's Thesaurus are marked by the fact that all of them adhere to the original ‘Plan of classification’ (macrostructure) and design of entry articles (microstructure) although the words collected changed continuously and their number increased steadily. This is testimony to the original ingenuity of P. M. Roget. Illustrations are given of the method how entirely new words, denoting new domains of reality, are fitted into the old slots.
