What is the NPCMJ?
The NPCMJ is a morphologically and syntactically annotated corpus of spoken and written Contemporary Japanese. It makes possible the extraction and analysis of many kinds of Japanese linguistic data, such as function words, constituent structures, clause types, and complex constructions.

The contents of the tutorial:
We will make an overview of the texts in the corpus and the format of the data, and explain how to use the on-line interface, how to download search results, etc., and how to use off-line tools to take full advantage of the data.
With regard to the on-line interface, there is a tool with various string-search functions, and various tools for searching over tree structures. We recommend that participants take a look at the NPCMJ website in advance: http://npcmj.ninjal.ac.jp/interfaces/

What do you need to attend?
Each participant should bring a laptop computer. Firefox is the recommended browser. The ability to make a network connection is necessary. If you have your own router, it is advisable to bring it, just in case.
