The book is intended both for learners of Classical Japanese and for
linguists with or without knowledge of the Japanese language. Systematic
descriptions clarify the morphological agglutination of lexical items,
which is one of the salient features of Japanese. Grammatical
characteristics are explained with a wealth of examples from well-known
works of the classical Japanese literature.

The monograph also compares Classical Japanese to Modern Standard Japanese
and shows diachronic changes which have taken place. It illuminates the
adaptation process which takes place when foreign elements are absorbed
into Japanese: the way they are selected and filtered and the devices
employed to incorporate them without destroying the backbone, in other
words the syntax, of the language. The volume is clearly structured and
contains seven chapters:

1. Introduction

2. Phonetics and Phonology

3. Morphosyntax

4. Word Class Descriptions

5. Honoratives

6. Rhetoric

7. Conclusions

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
                            Historical Linguistics
