About this title
Japanese has a group of words which express sounds of animate and inanimate referents, the manner of motions/events, the state of referents including weather conditions, sensory perception of people including pain, characteristics of referents, and finally human emotions. These lexical items are defined as ideophones in this volume. They are used not only in both spoken and written language but also in many different semantic domains. They all share the same linguistic characteristics in phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and graphemics. The book gives the reader an overview of the linguistic features of Japanese ideophones with numerous concrete examples, and is written for linguists who are interested in ideophones and for students of Japanese. Ch. 1 is an introduction explaining the classification and terminology of Japanese ideophones.Ch. 2 explains phonological properties. Ch. 3 describes morphosyntactic characteristics as to how Japanese ideophones are formed on the word level, and how they are used on the clause/sentence level. Ch. 4 elaborates on the semantic features such as polysemy and monosemy of Japanese ideophones. Ch. 5 introduces studies conducted by the author to see which ideophones occur and how they are used concretely in the Japanese media. Ch. 6 is a contrastive analysis between Japanese ideophones and their German equivalents.
