This paper presents conceptual assumptions about the interaction between the structural specificities of a thesaurus and the quality of a thesaurus-based application output. So far hardly any literature exists that discusses thesaurus modelling requirements with respect to the following thesaurus-specific application areas: classifying, indexing, autocom-plete, query expansion, recommendation and glossaries. By looking at these application areas the authors compare the structural attributes of SKOS and discuss their functional relevance. The authors conclude that taking these assumptions into account can significantly support application-oriented thesaurus modelling hence incrementally improving thesaurus-based applications in terms of modelling scope and effort. An empirical testing of these assumptions is subject to future work.
