This study aims to clarify the genre specific characteristics of lexicon based on the frequency list of Balanced Corpus of Contemporary Written Japanese (BCCWJ). A quantitative approach was adopted to reveal the tendency of frequently-used words by examining co-occurrences of verbs and nouns among each genre of the corpus, which was converted into cosine coefficient to conduct a cluster analysis. The results indicate a clear difference between book subcorpora and textbook subcorpora, and at the same time, similarities within scientific genres and arts genres respectively, both for nouns and verbs. Then, a qualitative approach was employed with the genre specific verbs based on frame semantics and FrameNet to illustrate their semantic characteristics, which implied the existence of genre-specific frames. Using the frame-to-frame relations in FrameNet, it is clear that the genre of literature, for example, is closely associated with the frames of Emotions, Perception, and Body-movement indicating semantic characteristics of a particular genre, a point which previous studies have not successfully explained.
