Japanese - Research


The major area of research is modern literature after the middle of the 19th century, but the poetry of the 17th and 18th centuries is also included. Autobiography and the literature of the fantastic are particular genres which have been studied, also linking poetry.


The major areas of research within Japanese linguistics are phonetics, phonology, dialectology, pragmatics and language acquisition. The two chief subjects are "accent and intonation of the Japanese dialects" and "accent and intonation of the Swedish learners' Japanese".
