 Abstract:
 
 This book is one of the pioneering historical pragmatic studies of
 Japanese. It closely illustrates the usage and contributions of some
 Japanese discourse markers, and reveals their developmental history. The
 section on Synchronic Analysis explores the previously uninvestigated
 functions of some discourse markers used in Present Day Japanese. Moment by
 moment in on-going conversations, where culturally rigidly-defined
 interactional norms are highly valued, a specific marker is chosen and used
 by the speakers as their strategy, based on their quite subjective
 judgment. The section on Diachronic Analysis then demonstrates
 chronologically how the meanings and forms of the same markers have come
 into being. Results include some noticeable changes related to the
 strengthened intersubjectivity. This multi-dimensional study also discusses
 the relevance of findings to typological characteristics and productivity.
 Consideration is further given to why certain expressions (rather than
 others) become discourse markers and independent forms in Japanese.
