Word Choice in Indirect Quotation in Japanese: Some Considerations for Teaching.
Burt, Susan Meredith
IRAL, v29 n3 p197-212 Aug 1991
Discusses some aspects of the Japanese language that look inexplicable at first but that turn out to be explainable by pragmatic principles shared with English. Focus is placed on how the Japanese choose a particular word to use in a sentence involving indirect quotations, when the words would be synonyms in other languages. (20 references) (GLR)
