HIRAMEKI TOKIMEKI SCIENCE 2017 "Time machine-less travel to the past: Visualization of classical and modern Japanese"

RSS

Language changes with times. The meaning of a word today is often not exactly what it was in the past. Time machines and audio recordings of classical Japanese do not exist, but it is possible to decipher how words were used in sentences long time ago. Professor Hilofumi Yamamoto takes you to the world of classical Japanese language using visualization methods.
