The meaning of a word is its use.  (L. Wittgenstein)
"When I use a word it means exactly what I mean it to mean" (Tweedledum)

Heres what the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) has to say on the subject

semantics:- relating to meaning

behaviour:- Conduct or course of action ...handling, disposition of..

schemata:- Any one of certain forms or rules of the 'productive imagination'
through which the understanding is able to apply its 'catagories' to the
manifold of sense-perception in the process of realizing knowledge or
experience.  (Now that really clarifies the meaning of that word!!!<g>)

ontologies:- Studies pertaining to the nature of being or the essence of
things, or to being in the abstract.

taxonomy:-That particular branch of science that relates to classification.
(Now that one I knew!!)

So according to the OED style sheets handle both semantics and and behaviour
