Abstract—Semantic entities extraction method has been used for various aims. Here, it will be used for a new application – computing semantic relatedness of texts. The previous works in the field of computing semantic relatedness of texts convert a text into a set of words by different methods, and then compute semantic relatedness between these words of texts. In this paper a different approach will be proposed in which any text converts to a set of semantic entities to compute semantic relatedness. Comparing the results with the literatures shows that the results of this new approach can be sufficiently reliable.
