Our research project results in as follows :
1. Refined system of j-pinyin :
(1)The system of j-pinyin (a mapping from Chinese syllabaries to Japanese ones) was meticulously rearranged, based on results of the hearing experiments for the last two years, mainly with respect several confusable syllables.
(2)j-pinyin was also partially changed from the overall point of view.
(3)Final hearing experiments were made in China in Daliang with the help of 10 male students and 10 female students as subject, to confirm the validity of j-pinyin. Results showed the almost part of j-pinyin system was enough valid. J-pinyin table was made public in print.
2. Implementing a prototype system to support inputting Chinese names of places and people :
(1)Protptype database system of Chinese names of places and people was implemented.
(2)Survey was made to clarify problems of previous Chinese character input methods.
(3)A new method to input Chinese characters was proposed to retrieve the database.
(4)Chinese experts reviewed the new input method so that the validity of it could be confirmed.
3. Contribution of research results to the society :
(1)The research results was adopted as a journal paper in Terminology Standardization & Information Technology and also invited to submit it as a Newsletter in East Asia Forum on Terminology. Moreover, the table of j-pinyin was adopted in the course of NHK Television Linguistic Course (Chinese) as a text material.
