Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

Bjarke Frellesvig describes the development of the Japanese language from
its recorded beginnings until the present day as reflected by the written
sources and historical record. Beginning with a description of the oldest
attested stage of the language, Old Japanese (approximately the eighth
century AD), and then tracing the changes which occurred through the Early
Middle Japanese (800-1200), Late Middle Japanese (1200-1600) and the
Modern Japanese (1600-onwards) periods, a complete internal history of the
language is examined and discussed. This account provides a
comprehensive study of how the Japanese language has developed and
adapted, providing a much needed resource for scholars. A History of the
Japanese Language is invaluable to all those interested in the Japanese
language and also students of language change generally.

University

Review of the hardback: '… monumental … it is likely to have an impact for
decades to come …' - John Whitman, Cornell University
