Adjectives and the Copulas in Japanese.
Nishiyama, Kunio
Journal of East Asian Linguistics, v8 n3 p183-222 Jul 1999
Analyzes two seemingly different types of adjectives in Japanese and claims they share fundamentally similar phrase structures. Discusses the hypothesis that there is a phrase for predication. Japanese adjectives show morphological corroboration for this phrase, which is referred to as the predicative copula. (Author/VWL)
