Text mining, also referred to as text data mining, roughly equivalent to text analytics, refers to the process of deriving high-quality information from text. High-quality information is typically derived through the devising of patterns and trends through means such as statistical pattern learning. There are many techniques for text mining. In this paper we describe the techniques, Information Extraction, Information retrieval, Query processing, Natural Language processing, Categorization, Clustering. We also discuss future challenges of this area using different techniques, particularly rough set based text mining techniques, improvements and research directions in this paper.
