In this paper, the functional and relational characteristics and requirements for various
types of semantic interoperability in a comprehensive international knowledge organisation
system are being discussed with regard to an analysis of the underlying retrieval paradigms.
Furthermore, this paper analyses the potential benefits and perspectives of the selective transfer
of modelling strategies from the field of semantic technologies for the refinement of relational
structures of inter-system and inter-concept relations as a requirement for expressive and
functional indexing languages supporting advanced types of semantic interoperability.
