Abstract. A faceted ontology consists of a set of facets, where each facet
consists of a prede nedset of terms structuredby a subsumptionrelation.
We propose two extensions of faceted ontologies, which allow inferring

model-theoretic interpretation to these extended faceted ontologies and
we provide mechanisms for inferring the valid conjunctions of terms.
This inference service can be exploited for preventing errors during the
indexing process and for deriving navigation trees that are suitable for
browsing. The proposed scheme has several advantages by comparison to
