Title: The Handbook of Japanese Linguistics
Edited By: Natsuko Tsujimura
Description:

Written by an international assembly of distinguished linguists, The
Handbook of Japanese Linguistics brings together the fundamental areas of linguistic inquiry into the Japanese language. These include major theoretical developments in phonology and syntax as well as interface areas involving syntax, semantics and morphology. The volume also explores important topics such as psycholinguistic research, ranging from first language acquisition to sentence processing, as well as discourse analysis and sociological aspects of the Japanese language. Each chapter contains an overview of the topic, current concerns, and future directions. This handbook is ideal for those who are familiar with the topic at the basic level and wish to investigate it in more detail, but can also be used as a language-specific and typological reference.
