Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

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.

Japanese for linguists throughout the world.'  - Satoshi Kinsui, Osaka 
University 

Review of the hardback: '… monumental … it is likely to have an impact for 
decades to come …' - John Whitman, Cornell University
