Book Information

   

Title: Emotive Communication in Japanese
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20151
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 151
Description:

It has become well recognized that affective dimensions of language
constitute an integral part of the linguistic system. Japanese provides a
prime example of the significance of emotivity as it has grammaticalized a
wide variety of expressions to communicate affective information. The
collected articles demonstrate the rich diversity of emotive communication
in Japanese and analyze various expressions with theoretical perspectives
that are often independent from Western models. This volume reflects the
influence of traditional Japanese scholars for whom examining
affective-relational aspects of language has long been a central concern.
The authors are also influenced by more recent scholars in Japanese
pragmatics such as Susumu Kuno, Akio Kamio, and Senko K. Maynard. They also
draw on anthropological notions such as the inside vs. outside dichotomy
that have been used to describe Japanese society.
