May 23, 2012
Motoki Nomachi is an associate professor in the Slavic Research Center at Hokkaido University (Sapporo, Japan). He holds a Ph.D in Slavic linguistics from the University of Tokyo. His current research addresses the grammatical typology of Slavic languages and the language contact with a special attention to Kashubian.
Dr. Nomachi is also interested in sociolinguistic topics on small Slavic literary languages such as Banat Bulgarian, Lachian and West Polesian.
He has published and edited some books, including Grammaticalization in Slavic Languages: From Areal and Typological Perspectives (Sapporo, 2010), The Grammar of Possessivity in South Slavic Languages: Synchronic and Diachronic Perspectives (Sapporo, 2011), Borders of Identity and Language in the Slavic World (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming, co-edited by Tomasz Kamusella)
