Title: Japanese Syntactic Structures and their Constructional Meanings

Author: KUBO Miori
Hardcover: Price:12360Yen
Paperback: Price:4120Yen

Contents: This book explores basic Japanese phrase structures,with special attention to configurational positions of predicates. Among contrasts investigated are activity vs.stative verbs,exhaustive vs.neutral interpretations of subjects, two types of causatives, so-called ga-no conversion, and different interpretive behaviors of the distinct clausal types IP and CP.A central syntactic discovery is that Japanese functional categories, C,I, and D,each uniformly assign exactly one nominative case. A new view of the relation between meaning and form is developed, privileging the idea that meaning in essential parts is simply form. In particular, sentences are differently interpreted, in terms of Kantian categories,based on the head's structural position.

Parallel to the analysis of a range of phenomena which are central to pragmatics, the relevance theoretic approach to utterance interpretation can be applied to the analysis of phenomena traditionally discussed in literary theory, including metaphor,irony and other stylistic effects. This translation includes translator's notes at the end of each chapter and the commentary on the original book Relevance Theory as as appendix.
