The XML keyword search has been used widely in the application of XML documents. Most of the XML keyword search approaches are based on the LCA (lowest common ancestor) or its variants, which usually leads to the un-ideal recall and precision. This paper presents a novel XML keyword search method which based on semantic relatives. The method fully considers the semantic characteristics of the XML document structure. Based on the stack, the algorithm is also presented to merge the semantic relative nodes containing the keyword as the results of XML keyword search. The results of experiments have been identified the efficient and efficiency of our method.
