With the emergence of Web service mashups, selecting the appropriate Web services from the vast amount of available services has emphasized the role of service discovery. In this research, we present a new way of enhancing Web services semantically using WordNet concepts (synsets). The important advantage of our solution is that it allows developers to enhance Web services with semantic information without semantic annotation against an ontology. This is different from traditional, ontology-based researches, which require significant cost and effort for semantic annotation and ontology management. Our proposed solution allows associating semantic tags on the message parts of Web services. We solve the semantic service discovery problem with a domain neutral service annotation technique. Additionally we test the precision of system by using different similarity measures on a tagged service data set. In addition, we provide a service description binding for WADL documents.
