Current work
     I am currently a member of the team developing NINJAL Parsed Corpus of Mordern Japanese (NPCMJ), a syntactically-semantically annotated corpus of Japanese, working mainly with Prashant Pardeshi(project leader), Alastair Butler, Kei Yoshimoto, and Yusuke Kubota. I am intersted in building case studies of actually using a parsed corpus for linguistic theories of Japanese syntax and semantics. I also have intererst in the annotation scheme and how to keep it consistent.
