Human language is a multifaceted phenomenon. It is simultaneously a property of individual minds and of whole speech communities, and thus both internal and external to us. It both shapes and is shaped by our societies over time. It is a combination of sound or sign , which has physical properties that can be measured, and meaning, which does not.

Miquel Simonet is a phonetician, laboratory phonologist, and scholar of second language studies. Laboratory phonologists employ the auxiliary theories and methods of instrumental phonetics and experimental psycholinguistics to investigate phonological competence. One of Miquel's principal areas of expertise is second language speech learning, particularly the acquisition of the sounds and the phonological structure of words of a second language. A secondary area of interest of his is phonetic and phonological variation and change, including contact-induced change, with a focus on Western Romance. His interest in second language learning beyond phonetics has been growing in recent years.

Natalie Hamilton is a translator and teacher. There are in both Japanese kanji and Chinese hanzi, and their meanings are roughly the same across both languages, with only small differences. You can find a list in the back of most kanji dictionaries, and two good online lists can be found at Kanji Alive and Wikipedia.
