Studies in Japanese and Korean Linguistics

Bjarke Frellesvig (University of Oxford & University of Oslo), Jieun Kiaer (University of Oxford) & Janick Wrona (Kyoto University), (eds.)

The book derives from the Linguistics Section of the 7th Conference of the Nordic Association of Japanese and Korean Studies which was held in Copenhagen in August 2007. It was an international rather than narrowly ‘Nordic’ meeting. The chapters in the book cover the broad diversity of studies on the Japanese language, including both historical studies and sophisticated theoretical analyses of the contemporary language.
