This paper proposes a system of map- ping classes of syntactic structures as instruments for automatic text under- standing. The system illustrated in Japa- nese consists of a set of verb classes and information on mapping them together with noun phrases, tense and aspect. The sys- tem. having information on direction of possible inferences between the verb classes with information on tense and as- pect, is supposed to be utilized for rea- soning in automatic text understanding.
