In August, the head investigator and some of the investigators visited Stanford University for about a week and had a series of discussions with the U.S.investigators. The Japanese side presented their previous studies on Japanese based on constraint-based formalisms, while the American side presented their latest research activities
Dr. Flickinger, who was expected to participate in our project in the following year, described the Verbmobil project, which attempts to build a large working English grammar with the collaboration of German researchers.
In December, we invited three American investigators to Japan and had a closed workshop in Kyoto for a few days. All the Japanese investigators visited Stanford University again in February and March in 1995, where we concluded the research in the first year and discussed how to extend the research in the second year.
Most of the Japanese investigators visited Stanford University from July so September and had a series of discussion with the American investigators.
The following facts were noted as either common aspects on both sides or significant in some way.
1. The apparent different approaches to the Japanese causative construction on both sides indeed have much in common.
2. The research on other complex predicates were also closely related to the above mentioned researches.
3. Some researches related to lexicon also had many common aspects.
4. Researches on negation on both sides were also closely related to one another.
In December, all the American investigators visited Japan, and we had a semi-closed workshop in Tokyo for a few days. The papers presented in this workshop were later collected in proceedings, which were published and distributed in March, 1996.
Finally, some of the Japanese investigators visited Stanford University again in February and March to conclude the past two years of research and discuss possible continuation of the research in other forms.
