This research project aimed at a more advanced understanding of 'fukugouji'---compound function words---in Japanese grammar. The project was based upon the results of the researches on 'fukugouji' by the head investigator and others over the last few years, and intended to develop them further theoretically as well as descriptively. The researches conducted centered around the following two tasks :
1)to survey the studies on 'fukugouji' in the past
2)to analyze the usage of specific 'fukugouji' forms
With regard to the first task, Fujita, the head investigator, made a presentation entitled "Descriptive studies on 'fukugouji'--a survey and the present state of art", in which he revealed questions to be addressed in the future. Matsuki, one of the investigators, also published a series of papers in which she surveyed the history of the studies on 'fukugouji' in detail.
As for the second task, a number of 'fukugouji' forms were analyzed in detail by the members of the project. The specific 'fukugouji' forms dealt with include :
a)compound case postpositions : 'ni tuite', 'ni oite', 'o megutte', 'ni kagitte', 'bu yotete'
b)compound conjunctive postpositions : 'to site', 'karaniwa', 'bakari ka', 'kuse ni', 'ni turete', 'ni sitagatte', 'ue de', 'kotomo atte', 'kotodasi'
c)compound auxiliaries : 'dokoro dewa nai'
The results of these analyses were published as a form of research papers.
In addition to these two tasks, the investigators studied various issues of Japanese grammar related to 'fukugouji', and published the results as research papers.
We believe that this research project succeeded in enhancing our understanding of 'fukugouji' to a considerable degree.
