9回 日本語実用言語学国際会議(ICPLJ9

We are proud to invite you to the 9th International Conference on Practical Linguistics of Japanese (ICPLJ9), which will be held on June 4-5, 2016 at San Francisco Sate University. 

Aims & Scope

Founded in 1998, the International Conference on Practical Linguistics of Japanese (ICPLJ) has aimed 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 9th ICPLJ with accompanying textbook workshops intend to provide a forum in which participants have opportunities to examine contributions in a variety of areas of Japanese linguistics to the teaching and learning of Japanese in the second/foreign language (L2) classroom. The two-day conference and workshops, which will present leading edge research on Japanese-language education as well as Japanese linguistics, will be a unique occasion for researchers, teachers, students, and all others with an interest in crosscurrents in linguistics and language education. The workshops will not only present new textbooks, but they will also discuss designing new textbooks.

In this way, ICPLJ9 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.
