Japanese and Korean are typologically quite similar, so a linguistic phenomenon in one language often has a counterpart in the other. The papers in this volume are intended to further compare and/or contrast research in both languages. This selection of papers reflects the Eighth Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference's division into five subareas: Conversation and Discourse Analysis; Language Processing; Morphology, Semantics and Grammatical Function; Phonetics, Phonology and Historical Linguistics; and Generative Syntax. The Eighth Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference was held at Cornell University.
