Papers from the Second International Workshop on Japanese Syntax

edited by William J. Poser

This volume contains papers presented at the Second International Workshop on Japanese Syntax, held at Stanford University. In these papers the topic of syntax is broadly construed as covering discourse phenomena and the interface between morphology and syntax. Particular emphasis was on discourse phenomena, to which are devoted approximately one third of the papers in the present work. The Stanford workshop was the second in a series of three on Japanese syntax.

William J. Poser was assistant professor of linguistics and director of the Phonetics Lab at Stanford University.
