In this example, let us leave this because we want to extract all the Nouns from the source data.
STEP 6: Advanced tab of the Term Extraction Transformation Editor Dialog box is essential to select Term Type, Source Type, and Frequency Threshold. In this example, we are extracting Noun only. So, we chose Noun as the term type and selected the Frequency Threshold as 1.

You can remove the warning symbol by configuring the error output of the Term Extraction Transformation.
