Hi,

Homonyms are common.  'tip', 'press' or 'bank' are examples.
Does SKOS provide (in a formal way) for an optional qualifier to
disambiguate homonyms in a thesaurus.
The full context of a concept may be provided by such things as a definition
or a scope note.
However, what I am looking for is a way to provide a thesaurus user a unique
display value, while
- still using the proper vocabulary for the preferred label
- not having (or being able) to disclose all concept characteristics (bt,
nt, altLabel/uf, rt, notes, ...)

E.g.
- tip (advice)
- tip (gratuity)
- tip (point)

Thanks for clarification.

Kind Regards,
   Johan De Smedt
