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. Let's discuss linguistics together!
This is the 4th year. We have the event on Wednesday August 1st, 10:00-17:00. at the 1 st building lounge.
