Title: Loanwords in Japanese
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/slcs.125
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 125
Description:

"Loanwords in Japanese" is the first monograph in a Western language to
offer a systematic and coherent overview of the vast number of words borrowed
into Japanese since the mid-16th century. Its publication is timely given the fact
that the loanword stratum’s recent exponential growth has given rise to recent
Japanese government publications seeking to outlaw foreign vocabulary or, at
the very least, offer native translations. Beginning with a history of loanwords,
chapters cover loanword phonology, loanword morphology, loanword orthography
and official and public attitudes to Japanese loanwords. The volume will be of
interest to a wide range of researchers, scholars and students of the Japanese
language.
