This wide-ranging collection of thought-provoking papers will interest all
researchers working on Japanese phonology, regardless of theoretical
persuasion. The contributors are a mix of well-established scholars and
talented newcomers, and their approaches are diverse. Many of topics they
deal with are familiar even to phonologists who have only a passing
acquaintance with Japanese (vowel devoicing, gemination, rendaku), but
readers are also treated to papers focusing on second-language phonology,
Tohoku dialects, and a comparison of Nivkh with Japanese.
