Good morning, Matt;
The definitive list of primary facets (a facet being defined as a mutually exclusive and exhaustive list of related entities) has nineteen entries - all of which are semantically consistent with the exchange of information between two parties. In other words, primary facets have to do with Agents (people and organizations) , Assets (digital, conceptual and physical), Locations (coordinate, named and relative), Actions (activities, events, processes and tasks), Functions (disciplines, roles and uses) and finally States (cycle, point, span and status).
Secondary, tertiary and quaternary facets can be created by combining primary facets, using a mechanism analogous to the one for creating molecules or compounds in chemistry.
Hope that helps.

Subject: [TaxoCoP] Most common facets used within organisations
I'm curious as to what the most commonly used facets within an enterprise taxonomy might be. The ones that come to mind are:
- Customers/Clients/ Stakeholders
- Business Units
Any further suggestions?
