Programs and tools for research

  • Web ChaMame

    A tool to perform morphological analysis using various UniDic dictionaries. It allows researchers to perform a series of work necessary for morphological analysis on the Internet via a user-friendly interface.

  • Data and Program Release

    Complete data from the Grammar Atlas of Japanese Dialects (GAJ), PDF files of GAJ, tools and contents for mapping linguistic (dialectal) maps, results of preliminary study for GAJ, and database of linguistic (dialectal) atlases of Japanese dialects are published.

  • Himawari: Full-Text Search System for Linguistic Resources

    “Himawari” is a full-text search system for linguistic resources such as corpora, databases of examples and lexicons. This system can search linguistic resources described in XML, and show the context of a search key and annotated information in the linguistic resources (e.g. bibliographic information).

  • FishWatchr: Observation Support System for Educational Activities

    In educational activities such as discussion exercises and role-plays, students often observe and evaluate their activities each other. FishWatchr allows students to make annotations on real-time activities and video-recorded ones, and supports students' group reflection by using the annotation results.

  • UniDic

    A large-scale Japanese lexicon with morphological information including statistical models for a morphological analyzer MeCab.

  • NPCMJ Child Language Development Timeline

    The NPCMJ Child Language Development Timeline (NPCMJ-CLDT) provides an interactive timeline mediated interface to the Soyogo Parsed Corpus (a parsed corpus of child language Japanese). This interface makes morpho-syntactic analysis of child language accessible to search and exploration through, most notably, the lens of an age range filter. Here is your chance to discover patterns of morpho-syntactic development of children acquiring Japanese with an interface that eases zooming in on very specific information on individual acquisition behaviour.
