NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) splitting pattern of 31P is discussed for PrFe4P12 assuming scalar order with Γ1g symmetry. We extend our previous study of NMR spectra into the non-linear range of the external magnetic field, and discuss magnetic anisotropy. A background is provided of the phenomenological formula for the NMR splitting pattern. It is shown that the field dependence of the NMR splitting can be reproduced for the field directions (001), (111) and (110) with account of the measured Pr magnetization. The hyperfine constants for the dipolar field coming from the Pr dipole moment are calculated within classical approximation, and the transferred hyperfine constants are deduced from the fitting of the NMR splitting pattern.
