One major objection to Brown and Levinson’s politeness theory [Questions and Politeness: Strategies in Social Interaction, Cambridge University Press, 1978, pp. 56–311; Politeness: Some Universals in Language Usage, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1987] raised by Matsumoto [J. Pragmatics 12 (1988) 403; Multilingua 8 (1989) 207; Japanese/Korean(More)
According to the progress of high-speed networks, many communication protocols are specified as concurrent systems. Such systems can be modeled as concurrent deterministic FSMs (DFSMs). In those protocols, a common input may be taken by some of concurrent DFSMs competitively. In such a case, the global behaviour becomes non-deterministic in general.(More)
Miyamoto, Mayu. M.A., Purdue University, May 2014. Effects of Online Oral Practice on Japanese Pitch Accentuation Acquisition. Major Professor: Atsushi Fukada. Even though there is a constant learners’ need for pronunciation instruction in a Japanese language classroom, some teachers are hesitant to include pronunciation instruction due to time constrains(More)
Noda, Takako. M. A., Purdue University, December 2013. Pragmatic Transfer in Japanese Requests in Emails. Major Professor: Atsushi Fukada. The speech act of request is known as a face threatening act (FTA) in the sense of Brown and Levinson (1987) and is considered a speech act that may negatively affect human relationships when it is used against cultural(More)
Suzuki, Natsumi. M.A., Purdue University, May 2015. Effects of Online Repetition Practice on Promoting Mora Awareness: Focusing on Vowel Length. Major Professor: Atsushi Fukada. Japanese learners often have a difficult time in acquiring both accurate perception and production of Japanese special moras. Since errors on Japanese special moras can change the(More)
In this paper, we propose a functional testing method of media synchronization protocols, which control the synchronization between audio and movie, described in concurrent synchronous timed I/O automata. In order to trace all test sequences (I/O event sequences) with synchronization on the model, we need to execute each I/O event at an adequate timing(More)
