Abstract: This volume contains papers read (with a few exceptions) during the 9th Conference of the European Association for Japanese Studies which took place from 23 to 26 August 2000 at Lahti (Finland). Opening of the EAJS conferences to the modern style organisation using the system of calls for papers, it became clear that Europe was no more only an "old Continent" because a significant number of people took the time and trouble to attend the meeting. The papers are divided into three sections: (1) Cognitive Approaches, (2) Interpersonal Relations, Social Aspects and Politeness, (3) Phonology, Syntax, Semantics and In-between. In each section, the papers are arranged in alphabetic order of authors' names. We are very pleased to be able to publish papers of distinguished scholars from Japan, and among them, of Professors Yoshihiko IKEGAMI, Seiichi MAKINO, Jiri V. NEUSTUPNY, Zendo UWANO./L/Our thanks are due to the Japan Foundation. Special thanks go to Professor Yoshihiko Ikegami for his advice on editorial matters. Our thanks also go to Dr Martina Ebi who helped us in the preparation of this volume. We hope that this book will, like the conference, help forge additional links between the members of the growing network of specialists of Japanese Linguistics from Europe and other countries in the World./L//L/As for the transcription of the Japanese language data and references, following the European tradition, we decided to use the Hepburn-system unless the phonological approach of an author's research was committed to other conventions.
