Expert systems form one of the most important research areas in Artificial Intelligence. The main parts in expert systems are knowledge bases and inference engines. In the knowledge bases the main knowledge is knowledge in the form of ``IF-THEN" statements. In knowledge graphs, a new form of knowledge representation, the ``IF-THEN" statements are tied up with causal operators (CAU-relations). In this paper, we picked out some Chinese operators with ``CAU" meaning, and investigated these operators. We also show by an example how to extract causal relations from a given Chinese writing text.
