In Your Own Words
Taking one concept and placing more specific terms and ideas into that one category.
a "spider web" of things you know, starting with a general category, and getting more and more specific.
A broad term broken down into more specific groups. Concept hierarchies, even those that start with the same large concept, may differ from person to person. Their classification, especially if based on preference, may be different from yours.

Breaking down of a subject to the most specific
Taking one thing and breaking it down into smaller more specific catagories
