Feature selection and weighting is of vital concern in text classification process which improves the efficiency and accuracy of text classifier. Vector Space Model is used to represent the documents using “Bag of Word” BOW model with term weighting phenomena. Documents representation through this model has some limitations that are, ignoring term dependencies, structure and ordering of the terms in documents. To overcome this problem, Semantics Base Feature Vector using Part of Speech (POS), is proposed, which is used to extract the concept of terms using WordNet, co-occurring and associated terms. The proposed method is applied on small documents dataset which shows that this method outperforms then term frequency/ inverse document frequency (TF-IDF) with BOW feature selection method for text classification.
