The Japanese Language

The Japanese Language - Haruhiko Kindaichi, Umeyo Hirano I'm no linguist and my Japanese is still elementary, so I can't comment on how dated Kindaichi's scholarship is, but I can say that this was a thoroughly enjoyable and accessible read. While some knowledge of linguistics and the Japanese language help, I don't think either are really necessary to get something out of this book. A curious mind will suffice, and I believe that after having finished this one--which probably won't take you long, if you consume it as voraciously as I did--you'll probably be left looking for the next book on Japanese linguistics!
