Description Many natural language processing applications use clustering or other statistical methods to create sets of words. Such sets group together words with similar meaning and in many cases humans can find an appropriate term quickly. On the other hand computers represent such sets with a meaningless number or ID. This paper proposes an algorithm for automatic finding of names of word sets. It provides result examples as a simple evaluation of the method.
