Scientific taxonomies or logical hierarchies, are taxonomies, often used in science, tht are intended to be objective. They are typically very complex and involve several levels. Unlike folk taxonomies, scientific taxonomies are not experientially based, thus disregarding humans' constant interaction with the surrounding worlds. Scientific taxonomies do not generally have any influence on language and cognition, and are as such not an important issue in cognitive linguistics
