For each article in ProQuest (and some other databases like ERIC), a subject is assigned to it. Since many topics can have different forms and relevant synonyms, the database is helping you by assigning these subjects. Sometimes databases, like ProQuest, will establish a thesaurus that allows you to search through them, see what their official term is for that word or phrase, and add it to your search. For me personally, this helps me come up with synonyms to search for! The thesaurus is a helpful tool that the average student doesn't know about. Watch the video to learn how it can help your search!
