Japanese and Korean are typologically quite similar languages, and the
linguistic phenomena of the former often have counterparts in the
latter. These collections from the annual Japanese/Korean
linguistics conference include essays on the phonology, morphology,
syntax, semantics, historical linguistics, discourse analysis,
prosody, and psycholinguistics of both languages. Such comparative
studies deepen our understanding of both languages and will be a
useful reference to students and scholars in either field.
