One of the main types of information retrieval systems produces a word frequency measure estimated by some important parts of the document using neural network approaches. This paper reports a general neural network for this task. It is specialised considering the main difficulties of these kinds of applications, namely, the calculation time complexity. It will be pointed out that the calculation, hence, the learning time could be much reduced applying the reduction algorithm proposed here.
