Define Taxonomy

I want to get a definition for Sharepoint 2010 Taxonomy that will be shared with end users. So basically it cannot be technical but good definition about Taxonomy.

Thanks

"There are many definitions for a Taxonomy, but I think in its simplest terms a Taxonomy is a framework to ensure that documents are accurately classified and easily accessible.  In SharePoint terms, this includes the site collection databases, sites, libraries, content types and site columns.  The result should make it easy to apply metadata to SharePoint columns so you can find your documents quickly with a metadata search."
