Abstract:

The new edition of An Introduction to Japanese Linguistics gives an
updated, comprehensive account of Japanese linguistics, covering phonetics,
phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, language change, dialect
variation, and gender differences.

- Changes in the new edition include a new chapter on language acquisition,
which includes experimental research and its implications for phonological,
syntactic, and semantic issues.

- Introduces linguistic notions and terminology and discusses theoretical
analyses of linguistic phenomena in the Japanese language.

- Focuses primarily on phonology and syntax, and adopts a generative
grammar framework.

- Includes exercises exploring descriptive and theoretical issues and
reading lists which introduce students to the research literature.


"While maintaining the well-balanced coverage of Japanese linguistics of
the earlier edition, Tsujimura manages to explore a variety of new issues
in the experimental and applied areas. The well-chosen additional problem
sets guide students towards important topics for future research." -- Junko
Ito, University of California, Santa Cruz

"This revised edition provides in-depth coverage of all areas of Japanese
grammar and will be a valuable pedagogical and reference work for anyone
interested in Japanese linguistics." -- Peter Sells, Stanford University

"In this new edition, Tsujimura gives in-depth discussions of all major
areas in Japanese linguistics, including recent discoveries and a whole new
chapter on language acquisition." -- Haruo Kubozono, Kobe University, Japan.
