This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
Japanese and Korean are typologically quite similar, so a linguistic phenomenon in one language often has a counterpart in the other. The papers in this volume are intended to further compare and/or contrast research in both languages. This selection of papers reflects the Fifth Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference's unique division into four separate panesl: Conversation, Grammaticalization and Semantics, Syntax and Semantics, and Korean Phonology.
