In this new edition of TUFS Studies in Linguistics, we aim to
showcase the various linguistics research conducted at Tokyo University of
Foreign Studies. In this first volume, we report on the international
symposium hosted by the Global Center of Excellence Program "Corpus-based
Linguistics and Language Education (CbLLE)" throughout 2008. Also in this
collection, we consider the timeless linguistics issue of "variation" by
utilizing the corpus analysis method. Whether sociolinguistic, stylistic or
individual, variations manifest in a variety of ways throughout time and
space and are closely related to issues surrounding linguistic theories.
Additionally this volume includes other research upon diverse themes such
as diachronic variation analysis, lexical variations, second language
acquisition and bilingualism.
