I am Akitaka Yamada, an associate professor at Osaka University.

I graduated from Georgetown University, majoring linguistics!

As a theoretical linguist, I am interested in the way discourse-oriented meanings are encoded in natural languages and my dissertation work explores this interface for addressee-honorific constructions in Japanese.


As a corpus linguist, I examine quantitative data by building and comparing statistical models to improve our understanding of natural languages.
