Taxonomies, Folksonomies, and Semantics: Establishing Functional Meaning in Navigational Structures
Bacha, Jeffrey A.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v42 n3 p249-263 Jan 2012

It demonstrates how semantically mapping a navigational taxonomy can help the developers of digital environments establish a more focused sense of functional meaning for the users of their digital designs.
