Renga Association Examples


Scholars at Nichibunken have created a database of renga (linked verse) in which they have extracted lexical patterns that appear in successive verses as associated (or linked) vocabulary. Users of this database can look up these lexical patterns either in the order of verses in which they originally appear or in reverse order. The database is a digitized version of Rensō goi yōrei jiten, which was published in printed form.
