Abstract:

This monograph presents a systematic exploration of Japanese syntax within
the cartographic approach, paying special attention to the locality effects
induced by discourse-based features such as topic and focus. Although the
main focus is on Japanese syntax, implications of the analyses developed
are investigated from a broader comparative perspective. Unlike previous
works on Japanese generative syntax, this book is based partially on
informant surveys, including the distribution of adverbials and the
categorical status of nominative-Case-marked adverbials, as well as an
exhaustive survey of ditransitive predicates in terms of word formation and
idioms in Koujien, one of the most comprehensive Japanese
dictionaries. A systematic syntactic study of the nature of clause-final
particles in Japanese, an area previously only explored in the framework of
discourse analysis, is also presented. It is shown that the EPP may be
satisfied by such discourse-related elements as topic and focus and by
these sentence final particles.
