1. Tomomi Okazaki, WHAT ARE WE DEALING WITH IN FOREIGN/SECOND LANGUAGE CLASSES? IT IS GRAMMAR OR CULTURE? THE EXAMPLE OF JAPANESE SENTENCES WITH DONATIVE VERBS, The Fifth CLS International Conference CLaSIC 2012 Culture in Foreign Language Learning: Framing and Reframing the Issue, p. 588-p. 599, 2012.12, [URL], When cultural matters are dealt with in Japanese-as-foreign/second-language (JFL/JSL) classes, this often involves introducing traditional festivals, typical life styles, and distinctive customs and etiquette observed in Japanese society, while grammar exercises are set apart from those introductions. Although the division of culture and grammar in JFL/JSL classes has a rather long tradition, and has not much been discussed up to now, is it not true that the grammar of any language, inclusive of semantics, syntax and pragmatics, exhibits (encodes) many behavioral patterns or tendencies shared by native speakers of that language? In this paper, Japanese "giving" and "receiving" expressions are examined in some detail in order to understand them better and to look for any important Japanese behavioral patterns or tendencies reflected therein, considering in reflection whether more culture-awareness accounting is possible and needed when grammar is presented in JFL/JSL classes. .
