Abstract. The Compound Term Composition Algebra (CTCA) is an al-
gebra with four algebraic operators, whose composition can be used to
specify the meaningful (valid) compound terms (conjunctions of terms)
in a given faceted taxonomy in an efficient and flexible manner. The "pos-
itive" operations allow the derivation of valid compound terms through
the declaration of a small set of valid compound terms. The "negative"
operations allow the derivation of valid compound terms through the
declaration of a small set of invalid compound terms. In this paper,
