About this title


This volume is a general introduction to the history and structure of Japanese, and summarizes the scholarships on the genetic relationship, dialects, phonology, grammar, and vocabulary sources of the language. It also covers the writing system, emphasizing its social as well sa its linguistic role. The most outstanding features of The Japanese Language are its emphasis on Japan's linguistic debt to China, the data on Japanese as an altaic language, and the application of modern linguistic analysis. "There is no fault to be found with Mr. Miller's entirely admirable work; there is, for me, only the pleasure of pointing out a few of the particular upon which my praise is based. At the outset, I can only say that this is surely and will surely remain for a long time the basic work of its kind; i.e., a diachronic and synchronic survey of the Japanese language in the context of its geographical, historical, and cultural environments." -- John Stuart Goodman, Modern Language Journal
