    Matsuura, Kazuhiro
    By assessing the construct of“waiting”in J.M.Coetzee’s Waiting for the Barbarians with the purpose of defining the novel’s distinct concept of History,this paper attempts to shed new light on both the structural and philosophical implications of the novel that are yet to be properly discussed.

    How did dictionaries arranged by radical undergo Japanization? In the following I shall take up for consideration the Tenrei bansho meigi, Shinsenjikyo, and Ruiju myogi sho and consider this question by examining in particular their relationship with the original version of the Chinese Yupian, compiled in 543 by Gu Yewang of the Liang.

  4. The imperative in English: The Six-Parameter Approach to Analyzing its Force

    Takahashi, Hidemitsu

A single cup of coffee can cost 10 dollars!(ironical use).” To the best of my knowledge, no previous theory is able to specify exactly how imperative utterances like these differ in the strength of force. This paper is a preliminary attempt to...
