Editorial Reviews


"This newly-revised edition provides in-depth coverage of all areas of Japanese grammar, in an accessible style which will make it a valuable pedagogical and reference work for anyone interested in Japanese linguistics."
Peter Sells, University of York

“An impressive, judiciously revised 3rd edition with comprehensive coverage of the main areas within Japanese linguistics. Superbly suited as a textbook at both undergraduate and graduate level. Highly recommended.”
Bjarke Frellesvig, University of Oxford

“This book is an excellent invitation to Japanese Linguistics for anyone interested in the language. It covers a wide range of topics from phonetics to dialectal variation and presents a comprehensive picture of what the language is like. The insightful discussion in each chapter provides students of Japanese and linguistics with many good research topics to investigate further.”
Mamoru Saito, Nanzan University

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.
