In Chinese nouns need numeral classifiers to express quantity. In this paper we explore the relationship between classifiers and nouns. We extract a set of lexical. syntactic and ontological features and the corresponding noun-classifier pairs from a corpus and then train SVMs to assign classifers to nouns. We analyse which features are most important for this task.
