This paper presents a simple distributional method for acquiring event-denoting and object-denoting nouns from corpora. Its core is a bootstrapping cycle that alternates between acquiring new instances and new features, using a simple log odds ratio for filtering. We acquire 3000 German nouns for each class with precisions of 93% (events) and 98% (objects), respectively.
