From the Inside Flap
Updated and revised in its third edition, this successful textbook introduces readers to a wide range of cross-linguistic issues, phenomena, and terminology in Japanese linguistics. Its coverage spans phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, language acquisition, and language variation, and now draws on the author’s extensive expertise by incorporating her own data, examples and theoretical analyses throughout.
The third edition introduces an approach which is less theoretical and more descriptive, leading to significant modifications to the chapters on phonetics, syntax, and phonology in particular. Updated exercises explore descriptive and theoretical issues, and each chapter now ends with a discussion on language acquisition providing useful context for readers. Ideal as a descriptive source and a theoretical foundation for students and scholars in this field,An Introduction to Japanese Linguistics offers an invaluable pedagogical tool to learn basic notions and terminology in linguistics and to develop skills in linguistic analysis and argumentation.
