This paper describes the technology and an ex- periment of subcategorization acquisition for Chinese verbs. The SCF hypotheses are gener- ated by means of linguistic heuristic information and filtered via statistical methods. Evaluation on the acquisition of 20 multi-pattern verbs shows that our experiment achieved the similar precision and recall with former researches. Be- sides, simple application of the acquired lexicon to a PCFG parser indicates great potentialities of subcategorization information in the fields of NLP.
