The general word lists are word lists that you manage in the CMS like a structure. You can assign these taxonomy lists to pages in order to create an underlying structure that is not visible to the visitor. General taxonomy lists allow you to group pages by term, for example you can create lists of pages with 1 or more specific terms. In addition, these general taxonomy list terms are also used on search pages in the form of filters.
