Dedicated to John B. Whitman, this collection of seventeen articles provides a forum for cutting-edge theoretical research on a wide range of linguistic phenomena in a wide variety of Asian languages, including Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Austronesian, Indo-Aryan, and Thai. Ranging from syntax and morphology to semantics, acquisition, processing and phonology, from synchronic and/or diachronic perspectives, this collection reflects the breadth of the honoree’s research interests, which span multiple research subfields in numerous Asian languages.

Table of Contents
“It has become increasingly clear that to understand a phenomenon in one language often requires a close look at similar phenomena across a variety of languages, and not just across the synchronic space but also the diachronic as well. John Whitman's life work embodies precisely this message. The range of languages he has investigated is immense, and the enormous scholarship that went into this investigation gives his work a quality of unparalleled depth and breadth. The broad range of languages represented in this volume and the variety of fields they represent directly reflect the enthusiasm, dedication, and curiosity that John himself brings to the study of linguistics.”
“A fitting testament to John Whitman’s range of interests and influence, this book will be of interest to theoretical linguists as well as scholars of East Asian and South Asian languages.”
