This is an examination of the effect of cultural tradition on the Japanese language. It offers an insight into the unique nuances of Japanese language and thought and charts the development of the Japanese language. An exploration of the intimate relationship between language and life- style, psychology, and culture. Suzuki convincingly illustrates the dangers of isolating words from their cultural context, and focuses on the types of misperceptions that result from such widely held practices.
