"I studied Linguistics and Japanese Language/Culture in university. My specialty was sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics, mainly researching how people process incorrect sentences. As far as Japanese Language/Culture goes, I focused largely on pre/post-war Japan, especially post-war Japanese film."
