User's Guide for the Nihongo Tutorial System.
Leung, Kei Wai; Maciejewski, Anthony A.
The Nihongo tutorial system is an intelligent tutorial system designed to use a computer to assist scientists and engineers in developing reading competence in technical Japanese. It consists of three applications: the Nihongo Tutor, which provides useful information about an article (translation, syntax, pronunciation) to help understand the text of a personalized lesson, and records student performance; the Parse Tree Editor, used to prepare technical articles for the tutorial system; and the Administrator, which uses student data to assign an article that is technically and pedagogically appropriate. The program integrates the three functions. The user's guide, presented here, gives an overview of each function and offers specific directions for its use. The section on the Administrator provides guidelines for article selection and system files management. The Nihongo Tutor's guide discusses text editing, display, and comprehension and the use of the electronic dictionaries incorporated in the software. Instructions for use of the Parse Tree Editor also discuss text editing and display and proceed to construction of a parse tree, retrieval of information, and modification of translation information for an article. The text is illustrated with screens. (MSE)
