Since 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 Fourteenth Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference, which was held in Tucson at the Marriott University Park near the campus of the University of Arizona. The papers cover a broad range of topics in Japanese/Korean linguistics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, historical linguistics, discourse analysis, prosody, and psycholinguistics.
Timothy J. Vance is professor and Kimberly Jones is associate professor,
both of East Asian Studies at the University of Arizona.
