Eighth International Conference
on Practical Linguistics of Japanese (ICPLJ8)

2014 8th International Conference on Practical Linguistics of Japanese (ICPLJ8) will be held on March 22- 23, 2014, National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics, Tokyo, Japan.

The International Conference on Practical Linguistics of Japanese (ICPLJ) will be held for the first time in Japan at NINJAL (National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics)! Founded in 1998, ICPLJ aims to stimulate research in Japanese linguistics and serve as a bridge between research oriented toward theory and research oriented toward practical application. Its scope covers a wide range of areas including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, lexicon, pragmatics, second language acquisition, bilingualism, Japanese language education, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) technology, and language production. The 8th ICPLJ is particularly intended to bring together researchers on the cutting edge of Japanese linguistics and to offer a forum in which their research results can be presented in a form that is useful to those desiring practical applications in the fields of teaching Japanese as a second/foreign language.
