Abstract:

Bjarke Frellesvig describes the development of the Japanese language from
its recorded beginnings until the present day as reflected by the written
sources and historical record. Beginning with a description of the oldest
attested stage of the language, Old Japanese (approximately the eighth
century AD), and then tracing the changes which occurred through the Early
Middle Japanese (800-1200), Late Middle Japanese (1200-1600) and the Modern
Japanese (1600-onwards) periods, a complete internal history of the
language is examined and discussed. This account provides a comprehensive
study of how the Japanese language has developed and 
adapted, providing a much needed resource for scholars. A History of the
Japanese Language is invaluable to all those interested in the Japanese
language and also students of language change generally.

- Separates each period into different parts, providing a clear chronological 
basis for analysis 
- Traces the changes that have occurred in the language from Old Japanese
to Modern Japanese 
- Analyses phonological changes as well as those within grammar and vocabulary
