Book Information


Title: Japanese / Korean Linguistics, Vol. 10
Edited By: Noriko M. Akatsuka
Susan Strauss

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 contrast research in both languages.

This selection of papers reflects the Tenth Japanese/Korean
Linguistics Conference's unique division into five separate panels:
Cognition and Grammar; Discourse and Conversation; Historical
Linguistics and Grammaticalization; Phonetics and Phonology; and
Syntax and Semantics. This volume also acknowledges the work of renowned linguist James D. McCawley (1938-1999) in the areas of lexicography, syntax, semantics, phonology, pragmatics, philosophy of language, and linguistic logic.

Contributors include Suk-Jin Chang, Sung Yeo Chung, Wesley M.
Jacobsen, Susumu Kuno, S.-Y. Kuroda, Chungmin Lee, Miseon Lee,
Seiichi Makino, Naomi Hanaoka McGloin, Katsuhiko Momoi, Michiko
Nakamura, William O'Grady, Masayoshi Shibatani, Yoko Sugioka, Timothy
J. Vance, and a variety of other scholars from the panels.
