A Missanroku is a book which describes the Zen questioning and answering carried out between Zen priests and their significance as a material for studying Japanese language.
In many cases, a Missaroku is hard to be identified as the one only by its book title. Therefore, we surveyed every single material which could possibly be the one based on its title written in the book list and the time it was copied by handwriting. The survey-at-site was carried out at the following libraries.
Library of Tohoku University, General Library of Tokyo University, Library of Kyoto University, Library of Hiroshima University, Tenri Library of Tenri University, Reading Room at literature Department of Kyoto University, Department of general Human studied at Kyoto University, National Diet Library, Tokyo Metropolitan Central Library, Fukuoka prefectural Library, Yomei Library, Sakamoto Ryumon Library, Ochanomizu Library, etc.
We produced a material list combining the Missanrokus which had already been surveyed by us.
(3)Significance as a material for studying Japanese Language
Despite the limitation arising from intricateness of the Zen questioning and answering and its unified writing styles, a Missanroku with rich colloquial expressions was found significant as material for studying the colloquial language of the Muromachi era.
