9780844283159: NTC's Dictionary of Japan's Cultural Code Words

For centuries the Japanese used their language as a barrier to prevent nonJapanese from learning about the inner workings of Japanese society and to ward off foreign influence. In fact, for a long period in Japan's history the teaching of Japanese to foreigners was a serious crime against the state. In this enlightening work, renowned Japanologist Boye Lafayette De Mente discusses how the psychology of the social and political syatem that evolved over the centuries became imbued in and expressed by the language to a degree seldom seen in other cultures.
