Several studies have investigated the canonical word order of Japanese double object constructions. However, most of these studies use either manual analyses or measurements of human characteristics such as brain activities or reading times for each example. Thus, although these analyses are reliable for the examples they focus on, the findings cannot be generalized to other examples. In contrast, the trend of actual usage can be automatically collected from a large corpus. In this talk, I will present a corpus-based analysis of the canonical word order of Japanese double object constructions with the assumption that there is a relation between the canonical word order and the proportion of each word order in a large corpus.
