Because Japanese and Korean are typologically quite similar, a
linguistic phenomenon in one language often has a counterpart in the
other. The annual Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference provides a
forum for presenting research that will deepen our understanding of
these two languages, especially through comparative study. The
papers in this volume are from the eighteenth Japanese/Korean
Linguistics Conference, which was held at the Graduate Center of the
City University of New York in 2008. The papers cover a broad range
of topics in Japanese/Korean linguistics, including phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics, historical linguistics, discourse
analysis, prosody, and psycholinguistics.
