Mineharu NakayamaDEALL is excited to announce that Prof. JJ Nakayama has published an important work in Japanese Linguistics, demonstrating once again DEALL’s strength in East Asian Lingusitics.

The Handbook of Japanese Psycholinguistics, by Mineharu Nakayama is Volume 9 of the Handbooks of Japanese Language and Linguistics series (12 volumes in total) that the National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics and De Gruyter Mouton jointly produce. It contains 18 chapters that discuss the process of Japanese language acquisition and the mechanism of Japanese language perception and production. The former discusses how one acquires/learns the Japanese language as a first/second language. The latter deals with how one comprehends/produces the Japanese language. The in-depth discussions by field experts on different topics address the limitations of our current understanding of the acquisition process and the perception/production mechanism. It is an excellent resource for anyone who would like to know about Japanese language acquisition and processing.
