Personal profile


Satoshi Nambu joined Monash in 2017 after engaging in linguistics research as a post-doctoral researcher for the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and an adjunct researcher at the National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics.

Research interests

His research interests lie in linguistic variation, which involves various linguistic aspects in sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, syntax, information structure, and psycholinguistics. His recent research has mainly dealt with how linguistic variants are used in a written/spoken language, particularly in a quantitative fashion, utilizing statistical approaches and software for experiments and data analyses (e.g. R, PsychoPy, Linger, Ibex farm).
