systems in comparison with those of accent and tone languages all over the
world. ISAT is financially supported by a collaborative research grant from the
National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics (NINJAL), titled
'Phonological Characteristics of the Japanese Lexicon'.

ISAT will be held once a year, addressing certain themes each year. The main
