The Handbooks of Japanese Language and Linguistics surpass all currently available reference works on Japanese in both their scope and depth, and provide a comprehensive survey of nearly the entire field of Japanese linguistics for the general academic community as well as for specialists in the fields of Japanese and linguistics. Each volume includes a balanced selection of contributions by established linguists from Japan as well as outside Japan which summarize mile-stone achievements in the field, provide an overview of the state of the art, and point to future directions of research.
