This paper identifies a range of issues with folksonomies based on tags. While some of these issues are in the familiar territory of metonmy, synonymy, ambiguity and similar problems that are less problematic in formal taxonomies and ontologies, others are concerned with fundamental properties of complex systems. Most notably these touch on evolutionary principles, particularly as they relate to the need for parcellation and recombination. The paper then presents a range of solutions that can potentially extend the functionality of tagging systems without greatly increasing the cognitive load on a tagging system's users.
