To deal with “disaster of dimensionality”, cluster identifying and large-scale problems arising in text clustering algorithm’s applications, a parallel text clustering method is proposed and implemented,which uses WordNet to the dimensionality reduction of the word list and stemming based on POS tagging and WordNet. Comparing with the Porter Stemming method, the experimental results show that this method can substantially reduce the dimension of word list, improve the accuracy and recall rate of the clustering and have a better understanding of each cluster.

Key words WordNet      POS tagging      Text clustering      Parallel K-Means
