In this paper, I examine where nanka in ordinary conversations comes from. Here I take into consideration the relationship between nanka and "concept" (Halliday 1994:59) in "information unit" (ibid.). From analysis and discussion, I point out (1) nanka is not "a habit of saying" to make introductory remarks, but discourse marker which follows new concepts for hearers and (2) nanka is born of metaphorical grammaticalization from pronoun and metonymic one from adverbial particle to discourse marker. Moreover, I make clear the process of grammaticalization concerning nanka. That is, nanka is derived from pronoun expressing what is unspecified. Later, influenced by adverbial particle, it marks the whole utterances after nanka as something vague and is used in order to connect to clear contexts before nanka. Then, it is grammaticalized as an expression that implies the speaker's attitude to or judgement on what remains vague after nanka.

For the people in the ancient Japan,nature herself was not God,but some natural products were their gods. Natural products had not their creator; they were not the creator and yet not creatures. They were matter and or non-matter. Therefore gods of the ancient Japanese were matter and or non-matter. And yet they were not gods of the Animism.

Japanese thought of territorial waters in the Edo era developed connecting with the coastal fishery and being influenced by the approach of foreign ships. In Cremean War 1854, Japan rejected the demand of England on mainting neutrality. In Prussian-French War 1870, Japan declared the neutrality and accented the theory of 3-miles territorial waters. But the system of Japanese waters has not been legislated till 1977. Kairi, Hiro, Shaku and Knot were introduced by the Meiji Government. Especially Kairi took the lead in the history of adoption of the metric system.

この小文は本学における初等数学の教育の素材提供の試みとして、音楽の「音」 の規則である「音律」に焦点を当てます。 近代・現代の音楽は平均律が主流ですが、純正律の方がハーモニーが美しいと言われます。 その美しさにアプロ ー チするため、 純正律と平均律を数理科学的に解析し、 両者を比較・整理するの がこの小文の目的の一つです。更に、純正律で奏でられる機会が多い「合唱音楽」を取り上げ、 具体的な演奏について考察します。

This paper will present an overview plot of a new discrete mathematics course. Its intended audience is non-science majors. The unique feature of this course is its use of computer algebra. After creating some super magic squares of size 5 by hand, super magic squares of size 4 are classified with the aid of Mathematica. Then the mathematical structure of these magic squares will be examined through an innovative approach by the author. Students can learn the use of arithmetic of modulo m, and the 4-dimensional geometry over the field with two elements. Overall, the goal of this course is to make the student a critical consumer of mathematical games, to understand what a mathematical structure is and how it works. We also mention that magic squares will provide good examples 'in nature' to motivate the student in a linear algebra course.
