The Handbook of Japanese Linguitsics
Edited by Natsuko Tsujimura, Indiana University 

Written by an international assembly of distinguished linguists, The
Handbook of Japanese Linguistics brings together the fundamental areas
of linguistic inquiry into the Japanese language. These include major
theoretical developments in phonology and syntax as well as interface
areas involving syntax, semantics and morphology. The volume also
explores important topics such as psycholinguistic research, ranging
from first language acquisition to sentence processing, as well as
discourse analysis and sociological aspects of the Japanese
language. Each chapter contains an overview of the topic, current
concerns, and future directions. This handbook is ideal for those who
are familiar with the topic at the basic level and wish to investigate
it in more detail, but can also be used as a language-specific and
typological reference.
