Description: It is well known that Chinese civilization was central to the broad historical development of East Asian cultures including that of Japan, a relationship that might suggest that of ancient Hellenic Greek and Italic Latin. While much of Japan’s vocabulary and its writing system are rooted in Chinese, however, it is less well known that Chinese and Japanese belong in fact to two entirely unrelated language families, Sinic and Japonic. This course examines the linguistic structures, historical development and interactions of the two languages. Course topics include: theories of origins and language-family affiliations; the historical development of phonological and grammatical features; the development of writing systems; and the complex role played by language in cultural influence and interaction.
