    The UAM-Santander 2015/16 project aims to perform contrastive studies between Spanish and Japanese following different approaches (descriptive, applied to language teaching, statistical, etc.). They will be performed using electronic data through an online platform available at the Laboratory of Computational Linguistics-UAM (corpora and morphological analisers) y and the University of Tokyo (NUMEROS and LETRAS software). The project intends to spread the interest in Digital Linguistics and Language Studies among the Spanish and Japaneses scientific community.
