This book adopts a wide focus on the range of East Asian languages,
in both their pre-modern and modern forms, within the specific
topic area of language change. It contains sections on dialect
studies, contact linguistics, socio-linguistics and
syntax/phonology and deals with all three major languages of East
Asia: Chinese, Japanese and Korean. Individual chapters cover
pre-Sino-Japanese phonology, nominalizers in Chinese, Japanese and
Korean; Japanese loanwords in Taiwan Mandarin; changes in Korean
honorifics; the tense and aspect system of Japanese; and language
policy in Japan. The book will be of interest to linguists working
on East Asian languages, and will be of value to a range of general
linguists working in comparative or historical linguistics,
socio-linguistics, language typology and language contact.
