(1) Aims and Scope

This conference is intended to bring together researchers on
the cutting edge of Japanese linguistics research and to
offer a forum in which linguistics research results can be
presented in a form applicable to those who might apply them
in practical fields such as teaching of Japanese as a
foreign language and in language technology.

We are soliciting abstracts of papers on original and
unpublished research in any area of linguistics, including
but not limited to: phonetics, phonology, the lexicon,
morphology, syntax, semantics, and discourse pragmatics.
Authors are urged to write for those who may not be
necessarily familiar with highly specialized technical terms
of linguistics.

(2) Publication

We are pleased to announce that papers presented in the
conference will be published in book form by the prestigious
Japanese publisher Kurosio Shuppan, as they had done for the
first conference.

The book, to be published in Japanese, is to be titled
Gengogaku to Nihongo Kyooiku 2 - Jitsuyooteki Gengo Riron no
Koochiku o Mezashite (Linguistics and Teaching of Japanese 2 -
Aiming at Constructing Practical Theories of Linguistics).

Further information on the book, including the philosopy of
the publication, is available at:
