JAPANESE LANGUAGE PROCESSING WORKSHOP 2000

Makuhari (Chiba), Japan, July 24th 2000


In recent years, several cross-linguistic models have attempted to
explain the processing of head-initial languages as well as head-final
languages. In particular, as a language of the latter type, Japanese
has drawn considerable interest. However, the limited availability of
experimental data on Japanese has made it virtually impossible to
verify the accuracy of such models.

The present workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers to
discuss recent issues in the processing of the Japanese language, with
special emphasis on experimental work in adult sentence processing.
The workshop will be divided into three sessions with the following
topics: Scrambling, Reanalysis, and Methodological Issues. 

All presentations and discussions will be conducted in Japanese.

Participation is free, but pre-registration is required. Please, send
an email by July 14 including your name and affiliation (in Japanese
and Roman characters), with the subject line "Registration" to
