Theory & Typology Division

Introduction

The Theory & Typology Division explores the phonological, semantic, and syntactic characteristics of Japanese as viewed from contrastive and typological perspectives and aims to contribute to the world-wide promotion of Japanese linguistics by publishing major findings in English. A project is also in progress for developing a parsed text corpus of Japanese annotated with detailed syntactic and semantic information that will be useful for cross-linguistic comparison.
