    Cambridge University Press’s “X A Linguistic Introduction” series started off as a series of concise grammars that would allow any linguist to uickly get a gist of the given language The series then changed and later volumes were intended as university textbooks by which eg students focusing on the philology of the given language could do a supplementary course in the linguistics of itThis volume in the series too at least begins as such a textbook And in fact those initial chapters are maddening to read In describing Japanese phonology and its interface with the writing system for a very general readership of people who have learned some Japanese Hasegawa simplifies her treatment so much that even she a recognized expert in this field ends up sounding very tentative and uncertain about what she is saying Timothy J Vance’s The Sounds of Japanese is a much thorough and enjoyable description of this aspect of the languageThis book gets much better when Hasegawa moves into morphology and other aspects of the language It is handy to have a book that sets out the morphology of Japanese verbs all on one page instead of dribbling them over many chapters as a course of Japanese would do The middle section of the book consists of common sentence patterns and syntax Then comes over a hundred pages just on pragmatics which makes this the only reference of its kind that I know of and I definitely should remember to go back and read this again if I ever decide to learn Japanese conversationallyAll Japanese examples here are given morpheme by morpheme glosses according to the Leipzig Glossing Rules Only transliteration is used – the only place you’ll find hirangana katakana and kanji is in the chapter expressly dealing with the writing system
