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。

  1. Characters for which Korean language learners make mistakes frequently: A multiple-choice test analysis of Japanese learners of Korean International journal

    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.

  2. A voice quality analysis of Japanese anime Reviewed

    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.

  3. Ongoing Tonal Change in Seoul Korean: From Tonogenesis and Lexical Diffusion Perspectives 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 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.

    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。
    当初の計画では、学習者を対象としたハングル書き取りテストを2020年度に実施する予定であった。すなわち、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。しかし、調査を予定していた名古屋大学と東海大学において、新型コロナウイルスの感染拡大によって実施予定の大学がオンライン授業になったため、特殊な状況下での調査からは一般化しうるデータが得にくいだろうと判断し、2020年度中の調査を中止した。その後、感染拡大が翌年度以降にもつづくであろうこと、および、オンライン授業やオンラインの要素を取り入れたハイブリッド授業がコロナ禍以降にも続くであろうことから、小テストをオンラインで実施することに決め、そのための準備を始めた。

    オンラインでの小テストでは、書き取りではなく、刺激音声をきいて、あらかじめ用意された文字画像の選択肢から選ぶという方式に変更した。刺激音声の種類や用意する選択肢は、これまでの予備調査の結果にもとづいて検討した。選択肢とする文字画像のうちには、現実には存在しない架空の文字も用いることとし、画像として作成した。また、新たに録音を行い、それらを編集することで、刺激音声とした。以上のようにして小テストを作成するとともに、オンライン上で参加者を募り、謝金を支払う方法を検討した。以上のような準備を、2020年度から2021年度はじめにかけて行った。このようにして作成した小テストを用い、2021年度から調査を実施する予定である。
    本来は2020年度から授業中に小テストを実施することを予定していた。しかし、新型コロナウイルスの感染拡大により、調査を予定していた名古屋大学と東海大学は2020年4月から全面オンライン授業となった。そのような特殊の状況下では、当初の計画通りの(対面授業を前提とした)小テストが不可能であること、および、学習者の学習環境が例年と異なっていて得られた調査結果を一般化することが困難であることから、予定していた調査をいったん中止し、2020年度は別の種類の調査を行うための準備期間とすることにした。
    各大学の授業は当面、多かれ少なかれオンラインの要素が残ると想定される。そのため、オンラインの小テストを準備し、2021年度から調査を開始する。

  5. Anime voice as a sociocultural entity of contemporary Japan

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.”

    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

    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.

    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。
