The verb subcategorization frame information plays a major role of disambiguations in many NLP applications. Japanese, however, imposes difficulties of subcategorizing in part because it allows arbitrary ellipses of case elements. We propose a new type of verb subcategorization frame code set that combines the verb's surface case set and the deep case set, as a solution to the difficulties of empirical researches on Japanese. The lexicon developed by this design has comprehensive information on the correspond- ences between the surface case frame and the deep case frame, and yet restrains the potential combinatorial explosion of the number of verb subcategorization frames by carefully identifying superficially different frames with an idea of alternative case markers and semantic roles, an...
