This course examines correlations between language use and social interaction in the Japanese context. Topics include language planning and standardization, regional and social variation of language, education and bilingualism, language endangerment, construction of women’s language, polite speech, and language and gender. This course explores Japan as a multilingual society where a growing awareness of social hybridity, life-style heterogeneity and cultural crossing has been observed in recent years. By positing Japan as a multilingual society, this course reexamines such basic concepts as ‘nation’ and ‘tradition.’
