Japanese and Korean are typologically quite similar, thus a linguistic phenomenon found in one of these languages often has a counterpart in the other. The papers in this volume are intended to further compare and/or contrast research in both languages. This selection of papers reflects the Seventh Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference's division into six subareas: Conversation; Language and Culture; Historical Linguistics; Semantics and Pragmatics; Syntax/Semantics; and Phonetics/ Phonology. The Seventh Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference was held at the University of California, Los Angeles.
