This is the second volume of the series "Usage-Based Linguistic Informatics", a product of the 21st century COE program held at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (TUFS). The project has an objective to realize an integration of theoretical and applied linguistics on the basis of computer sciences. With a view to practically applying the results of linguistic analysis to language education, the promotion of individual language research has become a high-priority issue. A new field of linguistic research is intended to be developed by elucidating the state of linguistic usage based on the analysis of large amounts of linguistic data. The volume, thus, consists mainly of language-specific corpus-based analyses on sentence structures in ten different languages such as Nuuchahnulth, Korean, Chinese, Malay, Turkish, Arabic, Russian, French, English and Spanish. It also includes papers that deal with various theoretical issues in contrastive linguistics and typology.

Poetry. LIVES is a lyrical, passionate, and occasionally ironical account of life in a modern world of infinite possibility. Filled with vivid imagery of work, love, dreams, and death, these poems celebrate the phenomenal aspects of existence while acknowledging the futility of our continual search for meaning. They confront both reality and the beyond, communicating powerful truths about eternal situations. Lucas Hunt has won a John Steinbeck Award for poetry. His poems have been published in Confrontation, The Iconoclast, Hidden Oaks, Proteus, Mad Poets Review, and Meet the Writers. "There is a kind of Keatsian ardor underlying his Eliotesque grapplings with the existential void...Lucas Hunt's LIVES marks the debut of a very fine poet"--Southhampton Press. "...insights into the uniqueness of not only individual life, but also the seemingly commonplace phenomena that affect it"--Midwest Book Review.
