Abstract:

Over the past twenty years or so, the work on Japanese within generative
grammar has shifted from primarily using contemporary theory to describe
Japanese to contributing directly to general theory, on top of producing
extensive analyses of the language. 'The Oxford Handbook of Japanese
Linguistics' captures the excitement that comes from answering the
question, "What can Japanese say about Universal Grammar?" Each of the
eighteen chapters takes up a topic in syntax, morphology, acquisition,
processing, phonology, or information structure, and, first of all, lays
out the core data, followed by critical discussion of the various
approaches found in the literature. Each chapter ends with a section on
how the study of the particular phenomenon in Japanese contributes to our
knowledge of general linguistic theory. This book will be useful to
students and scholars of linguistics who are interested in the latest
studies on one of the most extensively studied languages within generative
grammar.
