Takao Suzuki (sociolinguist)

Takao Suzuki (鈴木孝夫 "Suzuki Takao" in Japanese) is a Japanese sociolinguist, born in Tokyo in 1926. He is the author of "ことばと文化," translated into English as "Words in Context".

Suzuki argues that:
* Sociolinguists do not pay enough attention to the subtle differences between word usage in different cultures.
* Japanese linguists have traditionally been too occupied with Western linguistic categories, which are less than effective in studying Japanese.
