I'm studying computational linguistics at Brigham Young University. I work with linguistic cognitive modelling and automated language testing using speech recognition.

I have been an avid studier of Japanese since 2003, and lived and worked as a missionary in the Chuugoku and Shikoku regions from 2007-2009. I passed the JLPT level 1 in 2009.

comment Why is 二十歳 pronounced はたち?
Probably because 20 is coming of age; words that are treated with special significance often refuses to change.
