Over the past several years, researchers have applied different methods of text segmentation. Text segmentation is defined as a method of splitting a document into smaller segments, assuming with its own relevant meaning. Those segments can be classified into the tag, word, sentence, topic, phrase and any information unit. Firstly, this study reviews the different types of text segmentation methods used in different types of documentation, and later discusses the various reasons for utilising it in opinion mining. The main contribution of this study includes a summarisation of research papers from the past 10 years that applied text segmentation as their main approach in text analysing. Results show that word segmentation was successfully and widely used for processing different languages.
