[n the field of statistical analysis of natural language data, the measure of word/class association has proved to be quite useful for discovering a meaning- tiff sense cluster in an arbitrary level of the thesaurus. In this paper, we apply its idea to the sense classifica- tion of Japanese verbal polysemy in case frame acquisition from Japanese-English parallel corpora. Measures of bilin- gual class~class association and bilingual class/frame association are introduced and used for discovering sense clusters in the sense distribution of English pred- icates and Japanese case element nouns. In a small experiment, 93.3% of the dis- covered clusters are correct in that none of them contains examples of more than one hand-classified senses.
