It is difficult for the Japanese learners to perceive and produce the morae with devocalized vowels. To make it easier for the Japanese learners to acquire them, we investigate how Japanese native speakers perceive them. Usually the first vowel of the Japanese word 'susugi'(rinse) disappears, and so the pronunciation of 'susugi' is not [susugi] but [ssugi].(More)
Dialysis induced transformation of cytosol androgen receptor from mouse submandibular gland. On DEAE-Sephacel chromatography, this dialyzed [3H]methyltrienolone receptor complex was eluted at 0.10 M KCl which was lower than 0.25 M KCl required to elute the nontransformed androgen receptor complex, but higher than 0.05 M KCl required to elute the heat(More)
The activities of p-tosyl-L-arginine methyl ester (TAMEase) and cytosolic and nuclear androgen receptors in the submandibular glands of male and female mice were determined at various developmental stages. In males, the activity of TAMEase was detectable at four weeks after birth, and thereafter it increased rapidly. Cytosolic androgen receptor increased(More)
There are three kinds of Tokushuhaku (the specific timing morae) in the Japanese language such as the moraic nasal, the non-nasal consonant and the long vowel. Even though Japanese native speakers can perceive them perfectly, it is difficult for Japanese learners from abroad to perceive and produce them. To make it more efficient for Japanese learners to(More)
An esteroprotease hydrolyzing p-tosyl-L-arginine methyl ester (TAME) has been purified to homogeneity from male mice submandibular glands by the ammonium sulphate precipitation, Sephadex gel chromatography and DEAE-cellulose chromatography. The enzyme was shown as a single chain acidic protein (pI = 5.7) with the molecular weight of 27.5 K and evidence was(More)
This study investigates how the native speakers of Japanese tell the differences of the words containing the devocalized vowels. The close vowels [K? and =/? devocalize in Japanese when they are situated between voiceless consonants and between pause and voiceless consonant. In this paper, we verify the hypothesis that the devocalized vowels are the(More)
