Dwi Anggoro Hadiutomo

Dwi Anggoro Hadiutomo, S.S., M.Hum., Ph.D has studied Japanese Linguistics since his undergraduate at Universitas Padjajaran where he also took his masters program. Then he earned his doctorate at Rikkyo University, Tokyo. Dwi Anggoro has an interest in Japanese linguistics because linguistic concepts in Japanese language are different from other languages. Its grammar and alphabet are unique and interesting. Language politeness in Japanese language, for example, does not only show hierarchical relationships (such as boss-staff or old-young people relationships) but also horizontal relationships (in or outside group). Japanese people always involve their thoughts and feelings in their selection of expression and diction. Dwi Anggoro believes that all branches of science cannot be separated from grammar, whatever it is. In fact, areas of the discipline can be continuously studied even though the science of language is often considered less important. When seen more carefully, however, the science of language constitutes the main supporter of other branches of science. For example, lawyers manage to defend a corruptor successfully because they are able to make use of language to establish alibi.

Unpopular candidates of mayor could win an election because they are able to use language effectively in their campaigns or debates. In relation to the use of thoughts and feelings in grammar, it will be easier for those who understand the structure of Japanese language to conduct negotiations or establish relationship with Japanese people. This is important because Japan remains a prominent partner in the development and advancement of science and technology (IPTEK) in Indonesian in the future. For Dwi, his achievement to complete a study on Japanese conjunctions since Meiji era is something to be proud of. The data he used in his study was the language used since 1800s. It was not easy for him to finish the study as Japanese is not his native language. At the university, Dwi Anggoro has been assigned as a team member in the Directorate of Education to prepare international education programs. (*)
