Review Implementation of Linguistic Approach in Schema Matching

Galih Hendro Martono


Research related schema matching has been conducted since 1980. Few approach related schema matching has been conducted with various methods such as neuron network, feature selection, constrain based, instance based, linguistic, and so on. Some field used schema matching as basic model such as e-commerce, e-business and data warehousing. This paper explored implementation of linguistic approach in schema matching. Implementation of linguistic approach itself has been doing long ago with various problem like to calculated entity similarity values in two or more schemas.
This paper was a summary of the literature describing previous research in the implementation of schema matching with linguistic approach. The purpose of this paper was to provide an overview of previous studies related to the implementation of the linguistic approach in the schema matching and finding opportunities for the development of existing methods.
