Monolingooel term eextrectors usually look for words or phrases that occur more than X number of times in the text, or for words that occur in the text but do not occur in a dictionary or established term list. Such an extraction usually contains a large percentage of useless terms unless steps are taken to remove irrelevant repetitions from the result.
