Review:

...this volume is a deeply analytical, yet easily accessible overview of aspects of Japanese not covered in a grammatical description. It covers a wide expanse of interesting territory in surprising depth, bringing interesting insights while leaving room for thought and analysis by individual readers. This book is a valuable contribution to the field of pragmatic analysis in general as well as a new look at pragmatic and cultural aspects of Japanese, many of which have not been discussed elsewhere. --Sanford Lakoff "This work is a highly accessible, accurate, and enjoyable introductory volume which should achieve considerable popularity among undergraduate and postgraduate students of Japanese language in use." --Sanford Lakoff
