Language and Society in Japan
Language and Society in Japan
deals with issues important to an under-standing of language in Japan today, among them multilingualism,language and nationalism, technology and language, discriminatorylanguage, and literacy and reading habits. It is organized around thetheme of language and identity, in particular the role of language inconstructingnational,internationalandpersonalidentities.Contrarytopopularstereotypes,JapaneseisfarfromtheonlylanguageusedinJapan,and the Japanese language itself does not function in a vacuum, butcomes with its own cultural implications for native speakers. Languagehas played an important role in Japan’s cultural and foreign policies,and language issues have been and continue to be intimately connectedboth with certain globalizing technological advances and with internalminority group experiences. Nanette Gottlieb is a leading authority inthis field. Her book builds on and develops her previous work on dif-ferent aspects of the sociology of language in Japan. It will be essentialreading for students, scholars and all those wanting to understand therole played by language in Japanese society.
