Course Introduction

Linguistic Data Science Course

Using the methodology of data analysis and computational science, this course aims to solve theoretical and empirical problems that were not fully explained by previous research and to develop new ways of doing linguistic research. In particular, novelty and advancement of our linguistic investigation are found in the discovery and theorization of new linguistic facts through processing a large amount of linguistic data.

Research field
data science

Research topic
Data-based research on types and systems

I conduct research on the problem-solving methodology and techniques using data science and corpus in a broad sense including the Internet. My teaching fields are date science, machine learning, text mining include stylometry and quantitative corpus study, quantitative analyses of various text data such as newspapers, blogs, word of mouth, social networks, Twitter and lyrics, and development of methods, algorithms and tools for related data analyses.

KAGEYAMA Taro

Professor

Research field
linguistics, lexicon, semantics, syntax, morphology

Expected start date of appointment October 1, 2017

Research topic
Exploration of the universality and language-particularity of lexical knowledge

My primary interest is in developing a general theory of word formation and the lexicon with special focus on the interaction of compound and complex predicates with morphology, syntax, and semantics in Japanese, English, and other languages. I am secondarily concerned with the international promotion of Japanese linguistics and with academic contribution to the society including language learners.

Professor

Research field
theoretical linguistics, linguistic typology

Research topic
Analyses of the interface between syntax and morphology, explication of linguistic change in time and space

I specialize in the comparative research and theory construction in Asian languages, as well as the mechanism of linguistic change through language contact. I teach students how to analyze linguistic data with a linguistic method and put the results together in a verifiable way, and provide them with the practical skill of linguistic data analyses using the inductive or deductive method.

Professor

Research field
English linguistics, corpus linguistics

Research topic
Research on the methodology of linguistic description and study of Japanese and English usages

I deal with linguistic descriptions and usages in various linguistic phenomena in English and Japanese. I encourage students to utilize various corpora and seek for the best method of analysis for a variety of linguistic phenomena, and teach them the methodology of linguistic analyses for solving their respective research questions in linguistics.

Associate Professor

Research field
linguistic theory, syntax

Research topic
Descriptive, theoretical, and experimental syntax of natural language

I work on the development of a theoretical model explaining various syntactic phenomena in natural language. Furthermore, I examine the validity of the theoretical model by experimentally testing the hypothesis about linguistic competence and performance.

SUGIMOTO Yuji

ITO Noriko

Associate Professor

Research field
functional linguistics

Research topic
Modelling of the Japanese grammatical and semantic resources applicable to large corpus analyses

I am engaged in the study and description of Japanese language both in written and spoken forms. I am trying to work out a computational model of grammatical and semantic resources applicable to analyze large corpus, which allows us to improve information retrieval and conversational agent systems.

TANAKA Yu

TANAKA Yu

Associate Professor

Research field
linguistics, phonetics and phonology

Research topic
Experimental and corpus-based research on the sounds of language

My research interest lies in phonetics and phonology, which are subfields of linguistics. I address issues such as how speech sounds are produced and perceived, what acoustic properties they have, whether there are regular patterns in their alternations, and whether speakers are psychologically aware of such patterns. I often use corpus-based and experimental approaches.
