Studies in Japanese Bilingualism helps dissolve the myth of Japanese
homogeneity by explaining the history of this construct and offering
twelve empirical studies on different facets of language contact in
Japan, including Ainu revitalisation, Korean language maintenance,
creative use of Ryukyuan languages in Okinawa, English immersion, and
language use by Nikkei immigrants, Chinese "War Orphans" and bicultural
öhildren, as well as codeswitching and language attrition in Japanese
