Chapter 10. Insubordination in Japanese diachronically
This chapter is designed to give an overview of insubordination in documented Japanese language history, that is, not including pre-history and reconstruction. While doing so, a number of important issues concerning insubordination are discussed, including borderline cases between insubordination and grammaticalization, types of subordinate clauses particularly prone to insubordination, the relationship between insubordination and inversion, the relationship between insubordination and register, and structural and semantic correlates of insubordination. I further propose to categorize insubordinate constructions in Japanese into ‘open insubordinates’, which invite very broad inference with respect to the information conveyed in the deleted main clause, and ‘closed insubordinates’, which have a fixed interpretation, and can be understood as conveying a conventional implicature.
