The purpose of this study is to analyze and systematize the semantic relationships in knowledge organization systems(KOS) . For this purpose, Classification systems, thesaurus, subject headings, semantic networks, ontology, databases were analyzed in terms of the semantic relationships between terms. Also, various kinds of the terminological relationships not only in the current KOS but in the theoretical researches were collected and analyzed. In addition, six proposals were suggested for the organized system of the terminological relationships for the future uses.
