Linguistic Tactics and Strategies of Marginalization in Japanese

Analyzes marginalization from both the individual speaker and broader social  regulatory perspective 

Focuses on the linguistic strategies through which speakers are marginalized  or marginalize themselves 

Constructs a framework of marginalization also applicable in contexts beyond  Japan 

This edited book brings together studies on different aspects of marginalization in Japanese,  creating a framework for studying marginalization which can also be applied in other linguistic  and international contexts. The chapters in this book look at both marginalization of others and  self-marginalization, examining the pragmatic strategies used to achieve marginalization, and  investigating situations where it acts asan agentive tactic of speakers, in addition to a strategy  of broader social structures. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of  sociolinguistics, pragmatics, linguistic anthropology, and East Asian languages and cultures.
