  • - file naming and metadata management
  • - creating a linguistic archive, an outline of how PARADISEC began and how it works now
  • - regular expressions for text conversion and for complex searches of corpora
  • Lecturer: Nicholas Thieberger (Director of PARADISEC, the University of Melbourne)

【Publication meeting】ILCAA Joint Research Project “A Crosslinguistic Study of Nominalizer-final Constructions: The ‘Cogitation Process’ Approach”

Our collaborative research project, ‘A Crosslinguistic Study of Nominalizer-final Constructions: The “Cogitation Process” Approach’, was conducted from the fiscal year 2013 to 2015. The theoretical framework employed is the ‘cogitation process of noda’, which was proposed by Mie Tsunoda (2003, 2004) on the basis of the so-called noda construction of Japanese. A number of Asian languages have nominalizer-final constructions that correspond to Japanese noda construction. In this project we examined the nominalizer-final constructions of Kham Tibetan, Amdo Tibetan, Sive, Korean, Burmese, Mongolian, and Newar in addition to Japanese. For this purpose, Mie Tsunoda designed a new elicitation method employing mangas, and drew 30 strips of mangas for elicitation. This project produced typologically important findings such as following. (a) The uses of nominalizer-final constructions exhibit differences as well as regularities crosslinguistically. (b) The framework of cogitation process can be further developed and refined. (c) The eight languages under study can be grouped in terms of the differences and commonalities of the uses of the nominalizer-final constructions. We presented the outline of these findings at a workshop held at ILCAA on the 23d January 2016. We further plan to co-author a paper and submit it to an overseas journal. For this purpose, we plan to do the following at the proposed meeting. (a) To examine further the details of the data, particularly the differences and commonalities of the uses across languages. (b) To investigate further the correlations between the ‘cogitation process’ and the data obtained. (c) To work out a way to standardize the transliterations of the data obtained.
