Numerative classifiers are ubiquitous in many Asian languages. This paper pro- poses a method to construct a taxonomy of numerative classifiers based on a noun- classifier agreement database. The taxon- omy defines superordinate-subordinate rela- tion among numerative classifiers and rep- resents the relations in tree structures. The experiments to construct taxonomies were conducted for evaluation by using data from three different languages: Chinese, Japanese and Thai. We found that our method was promising for Chinese and Japanese, but in- appropriate for Thai. It confirms that there really is no hierarchy among Thai classifiers.
