This paper studies the ambiguity reduction ability of a probabilistic context-free grammar. We theoretically analyze a common behavior of any probabilistic context-free grammar. Moreover, we confirm by experiments that a probabilistic context-free grammar learnt from Japanese corpus has the ambiguity reduction ability as expected by the theoretical analysis.
