JPNS2671: Performing Japanese

2024 unit information

Learning Japanese presents many challenges and these are not limited to learning new vocabulary, grammar, and writing. There are any number of sociolinguistic and cultural issues one must also consider when learning and using Japanese, things that dictate the way that one should speak and behave (or not speak and behave). Students in this class will learn how these phenomena interact with language structures, focusing on concrete examples of language features that are often challenging to learners. Students will learn to 'perform' Japanese in a variety of contexts, advancing their understanding of key concepts such as polite language, etiquette, hierarchy, in-group/out-group, and more.
