Abstract In the six parts of the document “HIGH-SPEED TOOLS FOR GLOBAL INFORMATION MANAGEMENT. II. Specifications and Uses of the Transparent Query Language (TQL)” [1–6], the Transparent Query Language (TQL) that is the mathematical basis for the SOLID Retrieval/Processing System  is described and its use demonstrated. TQL is directly responsible for the speed, versatility, security and information/question-type independence of the SOLID System. It can be viewed as a Mathematically Complete (or Philosophically Closed)  data structure or content/context independent language capable of describing individual or classes of descriptors in any combination with any degree of specificity. The security system is easily used to prevent unauthorized access to any item in any file. TQL is sufficiently general to be used outside the context of information retrieval. It is capable of concisely representing and manipulating a wide variety of time dependent or static numeric and non-numeric information. The six parts of this document [1–6], are as follows. The first part, PART IIA , contains a review of the literature and then introduces the Transparent Query Language. It references PART IIB , PART IIC , PART IID , PART IIE  and PART IIF . Concise definitions of Transparent Query Language terms, Conclusions and Acknowledgments are given in PART IIF . Section III in PART IIA  contains information for converting citations of sections and subsections in the original document to their locations in the partitioned document.
