Profile
【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 is noteworthy for being dubbed by professional voice actors and is unique in its vocal
    characteristics. In this study, recordings were taken of students of voice actor course at a music college
    reading short texts and anime lines in various voice
    types. These recordings were analyzed by focusing on
    the acoustic parameters related to voice quality. The
    results showed that for a repeating task, when
    students were asked to repeat an actual animated
    voice, acoustic parameters such as F0 and sub-band
    harmonics-to-noise ratio (HNR) clearly captured the
    differences between several anime characters. When
    analyzing recordings of short texts in various voice
    types, a similar trend was found, although not as
    distinct as the repeating task. These results suggest
    that multiple anime voice types have been established
    in Japanese anime and voice quality helps to
    distinguish them.

  2. Individual Differences and Character-Based Challenges in Hangul Acquisition Among Korean Language Learners in Japan Reviewed International journal

    We investigated the acquisition of Hangul by Japanese learners of Korean. Japanese-speaking participants listened to Korean syllables and selected the corresponding Hangul. Most participants scored very high on these items, although others struggled with simple items, suggesting that Hangul is not necessarily easy for everyone to learn. Questions with /w/ + vowels had lower accuracy.

    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.

  4. Ongoing Tonal Change in Seoul Korean: From Tonogenesis and Lexical Diffusion Perspectives Invited Reviewed

    <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>

    <p>This study investigated the phonetic characteristics of Japanese voiceless sibilants produced by Japanese learners whose native language is Bengali. We compared these to Japanese native speakers and measured M1 (weighted average) and M2 (standard deviation) via a spectral moment analysis. The analysis suggests that M1 is the main parameter for distinguishing /s/ and /ɕ/ in Japanese. On the other hand, the analysis reveals that learners cannot distinguish them clearly. In their production, the place of articulation of /s/ moves further back or approaches non-sibilant and /ɕ/ tends to be pronounced as retroflex.</p>

    <p>This study aimed to investigate the phonetic characteristics and allophonic conditioning of Bengali voiceless sibilants. We measured M1 (weighted average) and M2 (standard deviation) through a spectral moment analysis of fricative spectra and the F2 of post-consonantal vowels with data collected from four native speakers. The analysis suggests that allophonic [s] typically appears at the onset of word-initial consonant clusters. It also reveals individual differences in allophonic conditioning. The comparison between our results and previous studies of Mandarin Chinese voiceless sibilants suggests that Bengali /ʃ/ is phonetically closer to Mandarin Chinese /ʂ/ than /ɕ/.</p>

    Our ongoing research project aims to elucidate the process of Hangul learning and individual differences among Korean language learners in Japan, adopting the developmental dyslexia research perspective. In this presentation, we will report the results of a multiple-choice test analysis conducted as part of this project, focusing on characters for which learners are likely to make errors. The test was conducted on beginner-level learners of Korean as a second foreign language at Japanese universities. It consisted of seven questions, each of which played a monosyllabic Korean sound and presented a choice of four characters. Tests were conducted nine times during the semester. The questions consisted of the following seven patterns: (1) alternation of the basic vowel jamo, (2) alternation of the composite vowel jamo, (3) alternation of the basic consonant jamo, (4) alternation of the basic vowel jamo in the heavy syllable, (5) alternation of the basic consonant jamo (with fictional characters as options), (6) alternation of the composite vowel jamo (with fictional characters as options), and (7) random alternation of characters. Analysis of the test results, with particular attention to question type, revealed significantly lower percentages of correct responses in (2), (4), (5), and (6) question types compared to type (7). For question type (6), which had the lowest percentage of correct answers, an examination of error trends revealed that there was a particularly large number of cases of incorrectly selecting fictitious characters, with o replaced by u for the /wa/ sound. The results of the above errors may be explained by the concept of transparency among the "hypothesis of granularity and transparency" presented by Wydell & Butterworth (1999) in their study of developmental dyslexia. That is, the Korean phoneme /w/ may correspond to o or u in spelling, and there is no one-to-one correspondence between phoneme and jamo. This suggests that special attention should be paid to the teaching of composite vowels representing the /w/ sound in Korean language education. We would like to further examine the tendency of low-scoring groups after increasing the number of collaborators, and to investigate other cases where transparency may be relevant, such as the spelling of words involving morphophonological rules, in the future. By doing so, we would like to obtain further suggestions on how the teaching of the Korean writing system should be conducted according to learners’ characteristics.

    <p>This study examines how the acoustic features of the Chinese Mandarin sibilant consonants [c], [s], and [s]and their following vowels in CV syllables function as perceptual cues. The author conducted speech perception experiments using speech morphing syntheses. The differences in perceptual cues weighting between native speakers of Japanese who learning Chinese Mandarin as a second language and Mandarin native speakers were also compared. Mandarin native speakers used both consonant and vowel part information as perceptual cues according to the Chinese phonological system, whereas the learners tended to be more influenced by the acoustic features of consonants.</p>

    <p>This preliminary study focuses on a phonetic variation of the velar nasal, which appears as an allophone of /g/ in several Japanese dialects. The author investigated two dialects, Gujo (Gifu prefecture) and Kitaibaraki (Ibaraki prefecture), both of which were considered to have the velar nasal according to previous studies. Tokens containing /g/ in the recorded data were analyzed through the inspection of spectrograms. As a result, the author identified two patterns, the typical velar nasal stop and the nasalized velar approximant. The latter pattern was acoustically characterized as the lack of formant damping, which is one of the most significant characteristics of a nasal stop. It is not clear whether this variation correlates with sociolinguistic factors such as region. More data are needed to answer this question.</p>

    Our ongoing research project aims to elucidate the process of Hangul learning and individual differences among Korean language learners in Japan, adopting the developmental dyslexia research perspective. In this presentation, we will report the results of a multiple-choice test analysis conducted as part of this project, focusing on characters for which learners are likely to make errors. The test was conducted on beginner-level learners of Korean as a second foreign language at Japanese universities. It consisted of seven questions, each of which played a monosyllabic Korean sound and presented a choice of four characters. Tests were conducted nine times during the semester. The questions consisted of the following seven patterns: (1) alternation of the basic vowel jamo, (2) alternation of the composite vowel jamo, (3) alternation of the basic consonant jamo, (4) alternation of the basic vowel jamo in the heavy syllable, (5) alternation of the basic consonant jamo (with fictional characters as options), (6) alternation of the composite vowel jamo (with fictional characters as options), and (7) random alternation of characters. Analysis of the test results, with particular attention to question type, revealed significantly lower percentages of correct responses in (2), (4), (5), and (6) question types compared to type (7). For question type (6), which had the lowest percentage of correct answers, an examination of error trends revealed that there was a particularly large number of cases of incorrectly selecting fictitious characters, with o replaced by u for the /wa/ sound. The results of the above errors may be explained by the concept of transparency among the "hypothesis of granularity and transparency" presented by Wydell & Butterworth (1999) in their study of developmental dyslexia. That is, the Korean phoneme /w/ may correspond to o or u in spelling, and there is no one-to-one correspondence between phoneme and jamo. This suggests that special attention should be paid to the teaching of composite vowels representing the /w/ sound in Korean language education. We would like to further examine the tendency of low-scoring groups after increasing the number of collaborators, and to investigate other cases where transparency may be relevant, such as the spelling of words involving morphophonological rules, in the future. By doing so, we would like to obtain further suggestions on how the teaching of the Korean writing system should be conducted according to learners’ characteristics.

    「声」のことばの型が成立する(レジスター化する)様相を,声優たちが演じるアニメの声質の音響的な特性とその声が喚起する「萌え」「カワイイ」等の情動との関係を手がかりに,日本およびその他の異なる地域・文化等における調査により捉える。その結果を,社会言語学,音声学,現代思想,メディア論,さらには生物言語学の観点から分野横断的・融合的に考察し,ことばの文化的制度化が言語の普遍性と社会・文化の個別性の相互作用によって生じる様相を総合的に捉え,言語文化研究の新たな方向性を示すことを試みる。
    (1) 今年度より新たに石井カルロス寿憲(理研上席研究員)が研究分担者として参加し,印象評定に基づくデータの選別,音響特性の抽出の工夫などを施して,これまで収集したデータにより精密な分析を実施した。その結果,キャラクターの異なりにいくつかの音響特性が影響すること,またこれまでの分析結果同様,それぞれのキャラクターには発話者間で一定の共通する傾向がみられることなどがわかった。この成果はICPhS2023(国際学会,2023年8月開催)において発表予定である。
    (2) 2022年9月3日社会言語科学会の第4回シンポジウム(オンライン開催)「プロソディを通して見る社会とコミュニケーション」において,「社会言語学の「社会」と「プロソディ」」という題目で社会言語学の立場から本科研の成果の一部を含めて発表した(招待あり)。発表においては,バリエーション研究における「社会」の意味とその変遷,社会言語学におけるプロソディ研究の先行事例,社会音声学による声質の研究の成果とその問題点,「社会」を反映する研究を今後どのように行うかの可能性を述べた。
    (3) 社会音声学ハンドブックの日本の社会音声学についての章を分担執筆した(出版準備中)。フォルマント周波数と強度,スペクトル傾斜,および基本周波数などがキャラクターの区別に寄与することを示唆し,アニメキャラの声質には一定の型があるのではないかということを指摘した。またそれらの音響特徴が社会的・文化的状況の変化と相互に影響を与えあい,声の社会的意味が移り変わる可能性があることを述べた。
    (4) メディア文化を構成するメディアテクノロジーの物質性を読み解くための翻訳書(『メディア地質学』)を出版した。
    本年度は,①アニメの声質の特徴を捉えるために,音響パラメータの分析をさらに進めること,②アニメの声質の一般的な音響的特性を明らかにするために,一般人女性の声を収録するなど新たなデータを収集すること,③アニメの受容状況やファンの活動等について,海外のアニメ関連イベント等での観察やインタビュー等の調査を行うことを予定していた。①に関しては新たな結果を得ることができ,おおよそ予定していたような進捗状況まで達した。しかしながら,コロナ禍の影響は予想した以上に長引いたため,②については対面での調査が困難であったこと,③については海外への渡航が著しく制限され調査を行うことができなかったことなどから,(4)という評価にした。
    これまで行えなかった調査を実施するなどして遅れを取り戻し,研究を進展させる。①今年度行った声質の分析をさらに進めて情動との関連を追求する準備を行う,②一般人女性の声のデータを収集し,声優コース学生の声と比較する準備をする,③声優による新たな音声資料の収集を計画する,④声と触感性などの文化的概念の関連の検討を進める,⑤アニメの受容状況やファンの活動等について,アニメ関連のイベント等で調査やインタビュー等を行う。

    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。
    2021年度までの調査では、単音節の文字の習得にかんするオンラインテストを実施した。2022年度はここから発展させ、正書法の「深さ」との関係に注目した。正書法の深さは、言語の書記体系が音素レベルをどの程度直接的に反映しているかに関するものである。英語の正書法は音素と綴りの対応関係が複雑であり、深い正書法となっている。韓国語は、単音節を見る限り浅い正書法であるかのように見えるが、単語のレベルでは文字と発音の対応関係において形態音韻規則がかかわっており、形態音韻論でいうところの基底形に相当するような表記をするため、深い正書法になっているといえる。
    このことをふまえ、2022年度のハングル習得に関するテストでは、2021年度のテストに形態音韻規則がかかわる単語を追加した。具体的には、連音と鼻音化がかかわる単語をそれぞれ2語ずつ(高頻度語彙1語、低頻度語彙1語)追加した。そのようにして作成したテストを用い、新たに調査協力者を募ってオンラインテストを実施した。
    また、2022年度までに実施した調査の結果を分析し、2022年7月に国際韓国語教育学会で「韓国語学習者はどのような文字を誤りやすいのか―日本の韓国語学習者を対象とした多肢選択テストの分析―」(原題は韓国語)という題目で口頭発表をした。このときの発表原稿をもとに、さらに追加の分析も施した上で、論文としてまとめ、2023年3月には学術誌に投稿した。
    当初の計画からは変更になったが、オンラインテストを行うという新たな方針のもとで順調に研究が進行している。研究実績の概要でも述べたように、2022年度のハングル習得に関するテストでは、2021年度のテストに形態音韻規則がかかわる単語の問題を追加し、さらに、参加者の注意度をチェックするためにビープ音の再生回数を問う問題を追加した。このようにして、2021年度の7問からなるテストから、2022年度には13問からなるテストへとアップデートした。これらをもとに、新たに調査協力者を募り、2022年5月から7月に9週にかけてオンラインテストを実施した。
    また、成果の発表も進んでおり、2022年7月にオンライン開催された国際韓国語教育学会において、韓国語で口頭発表を行った。発表では質疑応答を通じて有益なフィードバックを得ることもできた。その後、追加の分析を施した上で英語で論文としてまとめ、2023年3月に学術誌に投稿した。
    現在までの進捗状況にも述べたように、2022年度は新たなバージョンのオンラインテストを作成し、実施した。しかし、調査協力者数がまだ十分ではないため、同じテストを用いて新たに韓国語初級学習者から調査協力者を募り、同じオンラインテストを実施する。そのようにしてサンプル数を増やした上で、結果を分析する。
    2022年に新たに追加した問題に対する分析は、2022年度中には行っておらず、2023年度に新たに行うことになる。この問題は形態音韻規則がかかわる単語であり、綴りの「深さ」によって難易度の高まった問題に対する正答率にどのような個人差が現れるかに注目することになる。それにより、旧バージョンの問題で正答率が高かかった参加者のうちでも、バリエーションが見られることが予測される。
    以上のような観点に注目して分析を進め、学会で発表を行った上で、論文としてまとめて学術誌に投稿する予定である。
    また、本年度が本研究課題の最終年度にあたることから、これまでを振り返った上で、今後の新たな研究課題へとつなげたい。

    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.

    In the present research project we conducted a real-time MRI-based investigation into the patterns of coordination of articulatory gestures for the sequences oral and nasal consonants. We examined the production of nasal plosion and found a cross-linguistic similarity across English, Fukui dialect of Japanese and Nogaku theater performers both in its articulation and acoustic features: simultaneous occlusions of the oral and nasal passages followed by an abrupt and large opening at the velopharyngeal port. In contrast, the production of “denasalization” of nasal consonants in Korean and Chaozhou Chinese exhibits a smaller velic opening followed by a very brief moment of simultaneous oral and velic closures, revealing asymmetry in the articulatory coordination in two types of consonant clusters in which the same two phonetic events (nasal and oral consonants) unfold in the opposite orders.

    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.

    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.

    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.”

    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.

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

    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.

    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。
