The tags added by users are free rein and uncontrolled in folksonomy systems,so the porter stemming algorithm is introduced firstly in this paper to extract the roots of English tags. Then the method of clustering English tags is brought forward, which chooses the precision following the user’s choice. Finally, making use of the tag cloud, simulation experiment is conducted and proves that this algorithm can make the English tags clustered according to the user’s requirement and describe the resource better.

Key wordsFolksonomy      Tag      Cluster
