【教育】

◆文学部・人文学研究科と教養教育院の授業を担当しています。

◆文学部と大学院人文学研究科では、言語学分野の授業(主として音声学の授業)を担当しており、また、大学院生の研究指導も行っています。(大学院に進学して私の指導を受けたい方は、私の個人ホームページ内の「大学院受験希望者のためのQ&A」を参考にしてください。)

◆教養教育院では、初修外国語(いわゆる第二外国語)の朝鮮・韓国語の授業を担当するとともに、朝鮮・韓国語小部会の主任として、朝鮮・韓国語科目全体のコーディネートをしています。

【研究】

◆私の中心的な研究対象は「音声」です。もともとは言語学的な音声学から出発しましたが、言語学にとどまらない学際的な方向の領域(いわゆる「音声科学」)にも、言語学寄りの領域(音声学・音韻論インターフェース、実験音韻論など)にも関心を持ってきました。また、社会言語学的な方向で、音声の変化と変異や社会音声学にも関心を持っています。

◆具体的に研究対象としてきたのは、主に日本語と朝鮮・韓国語の諸方言です。また、音声のうちでもとりわけ、韻律(アクセント、イントネーションなど)の研究に主として取り組んできました。

◆一方で、最近は音声からは少し離れたところで、朝鮮・韓国語教育に直結しうるような研究にも関心をもっています。特に、学習者のハングル(文字)習得に関して、ディスレクシア研究の観点を取り入れたプロジェクトを立ち上げ、共同研究を始めました。

◆このほか、共同研究として様々なプロジェクトに(コミットメントの程度は様々ですが)参画してきました。上に述べた研究以外で、最近かかわっている主なプロジェクトは以下の通りです。

◇アニメの声質
◇言語獲得(とりわけ音声・音韻の獲得)、マザリーズ
◇保育士の音声
◇社会・文化心理学的観点からの国際比較(新型コロナウイルスに関する心理学的研究を含む)

【その他】

◆共働きで子供が二人います。ワークライフバランスを個人のレベルで、職場のレベルで、そして社会のレベルでどのように成り立たせていくかに、常に関心を持っています。

    Japanese anime cartoons are characterized by their unique voices, which poses an interesting research opportunity in the study of phonetics. To identify the acoustic characteristics of Japanese anime voices, we analyzed voice quality in Japanese anime. Six seiyu (vocal actor/actress) voices from two recent anime cartoons were included in our analysis. We also analyzed normal Japanese speech from the Corpus of Spontaneous Japanese (CSJ) as control data. Using openSMILE, software for voice quality analysis, we measured several acoustic parameters related to voice quality. The results demonstrate that anime has significantly different values than normal speech does in spectral slope-related parameters such as H1-A3, F1~F3 relative energy, alpha ratio, Hammarberg index, and spectral slope (0.5–1.5 kHz). The results suggest that an anime voice has stronger harmonics than normal speech does.

    <p>This study reviews the two types of tonal change recently found in contemporary Seoul Korean. The first is the emergence of tones according to the onset at the initial syllable of the accentual phrase. This phenomenon synchronizes the overlapping process of Voice Onset Time (VOT) distribution between lax and aspirated obstruents. Several previous studies have indicated that this dialect is in the middle stage of tonogenesis. The second type of tonal change is the emergence of the H tone in the word <i>il</i>, meaning "one." The present study examines the possibility of interpreting the two phenomena as lexical diffusion.</p>

    第二外国語としての朝鮮語のクラスには,ハングルを容易に習得する学習者とそうでない学習者とがいる。学習者のハングル習得にはなぜ個人差があるのだろうか?学習者が経験する困難さの種類には,個人差があるのだろうか?学習者のハングル習得はどのような過程をたどるのだろうか?これらの疑問の解明のための第一歩として,発表者らは名古屋大学の毎回の授業においてハングル書き取りテストを継続的に実施している。本発表は,その一部である一学期分の解答を予備的に分析した結果を報告するものである。テストは,あらかじめ録音した朝鮮語の音節を再生し,それをハングルで書きとらせるという形で行った。正答率の傾向をクラスター分析した結果,学期を通しての正答率の変化に関して、学習者を三つのグループに分類できることが明らかになった。このほか,誤りの傾向についても分析を試みる。

    韓国語(朝鮮語)は日本の多くの大学で第二外国語科目となっており,多くの学習者によって学ばれている。韓国語学習の特徴の一つは,「ハングル」という新たな文字を学ぶ点にある。韓国語教員の視点からみると,経験的にいってハングルの習得には個人差がある。しかし,どのような個人差があるのか,なぜ個人差が生じるのか,習得の困難さが他の能力と関係しているのか,といった点は明らかにされていない。本研究課題では,これらの疑問に挑む。
    韓国語(朝鮮語)を表記する際にはハングルという文字が一般に用いられており、初級段階のL2韓国語学習者はハングルによる読み書きの習得に多くの時間を割くことになる。本課題は,日本において第二外国語として韓国語を学ぶ学習者のハングル読み書きの習得を扱うものである。特に、ディスレクシア(読字障害)研究の知見を参考にし、読み書きの習得の困難さに大きな個人差がありうること、および、そこには表記体系の特徴が影響しうるという仮説のもとで研究を進める。
    本研究課題の開始に先立ち、名古屋大学において、「朝鮮・韓国語」初級クラスの受講生を対象とし、ハングルの書き取り小テストを実施してきた。具体的には、録音された韓国語音声(音節単位)を学習者が聞き、答案用紙に該当するハングルを書くというものである。一回に行う書き取りは8問であり、毎回の小テストの中で多様な音節構造がまんべんなく現れるようにすることと、難易度を上げすぎないように限られた母音・子音のみを用いる(例えば、激音・濃音は用いない)ことなどの配慮がなされている。
    本研究課題開始前は、予算の関係から、小テスト答案の一部のみを書き起こし、分析してきた。2019年度はまず、これまでに収集した全ての小テスト結果の書き起こしを行い、そのデータに対してクラスター分析などの手法で統計的に分析した。分析結果は未発表であるが、研究グループ内では結果をシェアした。その上で、分析結果を活かした形で2020年度以降に新たなデータ収集を行うべく、新たなデータ収集の方法について検討を進めた。
    初年度の主な計画は、当該研究課題の開始以前に収集した小テストの書き起こしを行い、それによって得られたデータの統計的分析を行うこと、および、それをもとに2020年度以降の新たなデータ収集の計画を練ることであった。2019年度にこれらは概ね達成された。
    2019年度のデータ分析結果をふまえ、2020年度以降は新たなデータ収集を行うことを目指す。ただし、これまで対面式授業を前提として立ててきた計画であるため、新型コロナウイルスへの対応として各大学の授業がオンライン中心となる中では、計画の立て直しが必要である。

    From the perspectives of linguistics and media studies, we tried to see how the acoustic quality of the anime voice performed by voice actors is established as a sociocultural entity which is internalized in the contemporary Japanese society. Our main findings are as follows: (1) The anime voice has its own unique characteristics in the spectral slope, which indicates that it contains more harmonic components. (2) To see how the anime voice is being embedded in popular culture, it is necessary to consider voice actor's "performance" designing anime characters, anime fan's "acceptance (consumption)" of characters molded by voice actors, and "emotional engagement" that fans feel for voice actors. (3) Other fields of media studies and linguistics such as auditory culture studies or the theory of sound symbol could provide promising perspectives for discussing the interrelated nature of anime, voice, and voice actor's body.

    Kesa tsukutta ryoori o sutete simatta.
    This Japanese sentence has two interpretations. In the first interpretation, kesa (“this morning”) modifies tsukutta (“cooked”); “I threw away dishes which I cooked this morning.” In the second interpretation, kesa modifies sutete simatta (“threw away”); “This morning I threw away dishes which I cooked (some days ago).” These two interpretations can be distinguished by compressing pitch in some parts. I call this phenomenon “local F0 downtrends.” Although this phenomenon is observed in many languages, there have been fewer studies on phonetic differences of local F0 downtrends and categorical (phonological) differences of this phenomenon among languages. This research project focused on local F0 downtrends in Japanese and Korean. Since I take more time than expected, I have not reported clear results yet.

  9. On the theory of language acquisition and change with the influence of media

    The mass media broadcasting is often regarded as an influential cause of language change. This comes from the fact that people have observed a huge scale of nationwide de-dialectization or dialect levelling since the 1960’s after the advent of TV. However, sociolinguists have been skeptical about its effect, because there are few studies which successfully demonstrate the influence of media on language with a scientifically persuasive manner. This study attempted to provide some evidence in terms of variation theory, indicating that the media contents seem to be relevant to the tonal changes observed in Kagoshima Japanese, and to suggest a tentative view of language acquisition and language change under the influence of media.

  10. Phonological phenomena and phonetic realization in the process of standardization in accentless dialects

    This study considered the fundamental linguistic characteristics and variations in the Ibaraki and Chiba dialects. Particularly, we focused on analyzing the pronunciation of voiced stops and the postpositional particles. Examining the pronunciation of voiced stops, previous literature identified two types of pronunciation: One type is dominant in Tohoku; the other type is dominant in other parts of Japan. Our results revealed that Tohoku and most of Ibaraki share a characteristic pronunciation, whereas the dialect of a limited area in southwest Ibaraki features a coexistence of both types. Concerning the grammatical aspect, we proposed a new hypothesis on the origin of the particle “ge.”

  11. Diversity and plasticity of neuro-cognitive systems for language processing: A view from comparative studies on East Asian languages

    In cooperation with East Asian researchers on cognitive neuroscience of language, we conducted experiments in Japan, China, and South Korea. The results revealed the relationship between linguistic diversity and human brain, and internationally published as journal articles or conference presentations. Among them, the result of an event-related potential study on honorific attitudes and expressions clarified the impact of cultural differences in language processing in the brain. It was presented at international conferences held in Germany (Berlin) and Japan (Tokyo and Hiroshima) as invited lectures or symposium lectures.

  12. Prosodic variation and language change observed in three regional dialects of Japanese

    Authorship:Other  Grant type:Competitive

    This study aimed to argue a possibility of language change that seemed to be taking place at the prosody level in regional dialects of Japanese by investigating variation of F0 movement in multiple accentual phrase(MAP). The results showed that (1) the younger generation in Sapporo and Fukuoka used narrower F0 range than the older counter part, (2) gender seemed the key factor for this variation in Kagoshima, and (3) stylistic difference was not statistically confirmed.

  13. アクセントとイントネーションの離散性と連続性に関する実験研究

    研究計画に記載したように,本研究の目的は,韻律における離散性と連続性を検証するアプローチを生み出し,それをアクセントやイントネーションの諸現象に適用することである。これは,研究の客観性を高めるという点で,韻律研究において大きな進展をもたらしうる。1年目の本年は,当初の予定通り,アクセントを対象とし,高音声変異連続再生課題(high phonetic variability sequence recall task)を試した。
    高音声変異連続再生課題は,被験者に2通りの無意味語を学習してもらったのち,これらの音声を連続して聞かせ,単語の順番を当てさせるという実験である。共通語話者(南関東出身者)のほかに,方言学において伝統的に無アクセントといわれてきた南東北の出身者も被験者とした。実験の結果は,高音声変異連続再生課題がアクセントの離散性の検討に有効であることを示すものであった。この手法はこれまでとられてきた範疇知覚実験のようなアプローチよりも頑健であると考えられ,その点において方法論上の進歩をもたらすものである。研究結果は2010年5月にシカゴで開催される国際会議Speech Prosody 2010において発表する予定である(採択済み)。
    その一方で,当研究課題が採択される以前から行っていた朝鮮語慶尚道方言の研究の結果が,学術誌Language Researchに掲載された。これは,慶尚南道馬山・昌原方言において二つの音調型が合流しつつあることを示したものである。朝鮮語のアクセントは当研究課題における検討対象の一つでもあるため,この論文で扱った内容は当研究課題の基礎をなすものでもある。
