In this paper, we propose a method to calculate the relational value (but not lexical association) between technical terms appeared in the INBUDS, i.e. the bibliographical database for Indology and Buddhist Studies in Japan. Because of the dearth of electronic lexicons, we tried to develop a method to estimate the mutuality of words which appear in the same article in INBUDS. Since the estimate, in terms of simple, direct word correspondence was not sufficiently reliable, we have also incorporated indirect word correspondence by employing the idea of "chain" as well. Finally, we describe the incorporation into the INBUDS search engine of our calculations.
