text mining

Analyzing natural language in documents, e-mail messages and other free-form text. Text mining attempts to derive meaning from the words and sentences in order to classify documents, route messages appropriately, as well as create summaries of content. For example, e-mail coming to a support site can be analyzed to direct the message to the appropriate technician. See noisy text and data mining.
