Abstract:

Japanese ranks as the sixth language of the world with more than 125
million speakers in the island state of Japan. Its genetic relation
has been a topic of heated discussion, but Altaic and Austronesian
languages appear to have contributed to the early formation of this
language. It has a long written tradition, which goes back to texts
from the eighth century AD. The modern writing system employs a
mixture of Chinese characters and two sets of syllabary developed from
the Chinese characters. This book consists of fourteen chapters
covering the phonology, morphology, the writing system, grammatical
constructions, and discourse and pragmatic phenomena of Japanese. It
provides researchers with a useful typological reference and students
of Japanese with a theory-neutral introduction to current linguistic
research issues.
