This paper describes our preliminary at- tempt to automatically recognize zero ad- nominals, a subgroup of zero pronouns, in Japanese discourse. Based on the corpus study, we define and classify what we call “argument-taking nouns (ATNs),” i.e., nouns that can appear with zero adnomi- nals. We propose an ATN recognition al- gorithm that consists of lexicon-based heuristics, drawn from the observations of our analysis. We finally present the result of the algorithm evaluation and discuss future directions.
