A classic study by one of Japan’s foremost linguists, The Japanese Language illuminates one of the world’s most common and commonly misunderstood languages. With fascinating discussions of the controversial beginnings of Japanese, and able clarifications of the dialects, jargon, and layers of formality which color this language, it is an excellent reference for students of the Japanese language. Striking illustrations of the concepts that infuse Japanese speech -- from single words representing the dark shadows cast by dense trees to the many words expressing shades of blue -- reveal the familiar structures and values of Japanese culture.
