Abstract: This paper is based on an analytical study of 335 keywords extracted from titles and abstracts of 70 research articles, taking ten from each year starting from 2000 to 2006, in decreasing order of relevance, on the subject fermi liquid, which is a specific subject under the broad area of condensed matter physics. The research articles have been collected from the bibliographic database of INSPEC. The keywords are indexed to critically examine their physical structure that is composed of three fundamental kernels, viz. keyphrase, modulator and qualifier. The keyphrase reflects the central concept, which is usually post-coordinated by the modulator to amend the central concept in accordance with the relevant context. The qualifier comes after the modulator to describe the particular state of the central concept and/or amended concept. The keywords are further classified in 16 classes on the basis of the four parameters, viz., associativeness, chronological appearance, frequency of occurrence and category. The taxonomy of keywords will enable to analyze research trend of a subject and to identify potential research areas of a subject.
