  • Terms - Individual words or phrases are added to a Term Set that you can create, copy, reuse, merge, deprecate, move or delete.

    Taxonomy - The Sience of Classification

    So mixing you can use a term set with terms in order to classify information over SharePoint, that can be news, pages ......

    Term Store is the root for the Term Set's

  • Hi Praveen,

    Taxonomy Fields are used for the Managed Metadata of SharePoint 2010.

    Please refer the following article for the same:

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi,

    TaxonomyField class contains certain attributes such as 'SspId', 'TermSetId', etc which map with the values of the Managed Metadata in the Central Admin. 

    In order to set these values you need to use the TaxonomyField class. 

    Please check the following link for details (see section under 'Set up the eventreceiver'):
