25. Aspects of "Grammar" Reflected in Japanese

This paper discusses the goal of Generative Grammar, focusing on the issue of what should be the object of inquiry in the study of Japanese. It claims that the examination of the demonstrative expressions in Japanese is necessary if one aims to investigate a language such as Japanese and argue for the existence of Grammar as an autonomous system. Drawing from the conclusion reached at in Ueyama 1998, the paper shows how the grammatical constraints affect the acceptability of sentences in Japanese and English..
