Although indexes may overlap, the output of an automatic indexer is generally presented as a flat and unstructured list of terms. Our pur- pose is to exploit term overlap and embed- ding so as to yield a substantial qualitative and quantitative improvement in automatic in- dexing through concept combination. The in- crease in the volume of indexing is 10.5% for free indexing and 52.3% for controlled indexing. The resulting structure of the indexed corpus is a partial conceptual analysis.
