Abstract. In [11], we proposed an algebra with four algebraic opera-
tors, whose composition can be used to generate valid compound 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. Here, we formally
define the model-theoretic semantics of the operations and the closed-
