Abstract:

This introduction to Japanese linguistics is designed to introduce students
to all of the main areas of the subject. What makes this book distinct from
other textbooks on Japanese linguistics is that linguistics is introduced
by means of authentic texts which students might encounter in contemporary
Japan. The book covers:

*Speech sounds and sound structures
*Japanese vocabulary
*Writing in Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana and Roman letters
*Word structures, ideograms, morphemes and compounding
*Sentence structure
*Word meaning

Each chapter contains an explanation of the key concepts of Japanese
linguistics, followed by activities, which are designed to promote the
students' active understanding of the forms and functions of the language
in authentic texts. This textbook will be an essential introduction to
Japanese linguistics for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates,
studying either the Japanese language or linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Subject Language(s): Japanese (jpn)
