This thesis presents an interdisciplinary convergence between Linguistics and Information Science (IS) and its research object as the thesaurus. The problematic of the research is related to how the evaluation of thesauri is developed in IS, based on typological aspects such as: the theme/subject's thematic scope, its provision or organization, the level of specificity of the terms, and the language used. The study's main purpose is to build and apply a linguistic model assessment of thesauri, based on the articulation between the Textual Analysis of Discourses (TAD) and the Studies on Genres, considering its aspects: historical, textual, discursive and typological. The research is bibliographic, has a documentary nature and brings the theoretical approach of the Textual Linguistics (TL), Textual Analysis of Discourse (TAD), Discursive Tradition (DT) and Study of Genres. The construction of the model of evaluation begins by discussing the origin, definition, elaboration, function, use, structure, regulatory guidelines and typology (form) of the thesaurus, by the realization of their state of the art. A detailed account of the thesaurus's components was prepared through the articulation between the levels of analysis the plan of discourse and text, proposed by TAD (ADAM, 2011) and the Studies on Genres developed in Bakhtin (1997), Marcuschi (2008), Travaglia (2007), Adam (2011), Maingueneau (2008) and Koch and Oesterreicher (2007). The model was established in four steps: 1) analysis of the position of the thesaurus on continuum between orality and scripturality, 2) analysis of the textual dimension of the thesaurus, 3) analysis of the discursive dimension of the thesaurus, 4) analysis of the thesaurus typology. The model was applied in the Thesaurus of the Electoral Justice (TEJ), Corpus chosen by better serving the parameters proposed: area of concentration, updating and standardization norms. The results indicate that the TEJ belongs to the continuum of escriturality with the predominance of descriptive aspects and illocutionary assertive acts. Furthermore, it is the presence of a national and international toponymy that caters exclusively to the discursive community legal area, a procedure that is not covered in the regulatory guidelines. It is concluded that the thesis can contribute to expand studies focused on textual genres characterization that are underexplored by the TL, and promote advances on thesaurus's evaluation studies in the IS area as well.
