I have put up a glossary of terms relating to thesauri, faceted 
classification and related topics at 

This is based on discussions between a group of specialists in the area 
of thesaurus development from a library / information science / 
information management point of view rather than a technical computer 
approach. We hope that it will aid understanding and provide common 
ground between those with this background and those who are now 
developing applications of these ideas within a computer and semantic 
web context.

We are still discussing some of the definitions among ourselves, so they 
should not be taken as definitive, but I thought it useful to let you 
know of this list now so that we can receive feedback if you find 
problems with any of the definitions, if they are unclear or conflict 
with usage elsewhere.

Best wishes
