Pragmatics and discourse analysis of the language of Japanese food
Kiyoko Toratani, York University, Canada
In recent years, the language of food has attracted the attention of many scholars, but the focus has been mostly on food from Western cultures. Although work on the language of Japanese food is on the rise, many topics remain unexplored. This special issue aims to gain insight into pragmatic and discourse characteristics of the language of Japanese food. The term ‘Japanese food’ here is broadly construed, covering food consumed in Japan (native or foreign) and Japanese food consumed overseas. The language studied can be Japanese or another language, as long as Japanese food is studied.
Questions that may be explored include (but are not limited to):
- Does the examination of the language of Japanese food reveal functions of grammatical/lexical items not common in other discourse genres?
- What are the underlying socio-cultural motivations for the use of a given linguistic item in Japanese food discourse?
- What are the linguistic features of food blogs (e.g. use of non-expert language in bento-blogs) and do Japanese and North American blogs differ?
Contributions based on talks presented at the “Conference on the Language of Japanese Food” held in Toronto, Canada, on May 4 and 5, 2018, as well as new studies on pragmatics and discourse analysis of the language of Japanese food are welcomed.
The deadline for submission is January 31, 2019.
