Japanese at Work; (PDF) empirically explores how different linguistic resources are employed to achieve appropriate workplace role inhabitance and to attain work-oriented communicative ends in a range of workplaces in Japan. Suitable role inhabitance is seen to include considerations of gender and interpersonal familiarity; together with speaker orientation to normative structures for marking politeness and power. This exclusively researched edited collection will appeal to scholars of workplace discourse and Japanese sociolinguistics; and also Japanese language instructors and adult learners of Japanese. It is sure to make a key contribution to the cross-linguistic/cultural study of workplace discourse in the globalized background of the twenty-first century.
