Abstract
From a linguistic perspective, the present paper discusses effects of loanwords in Japanese to its language development. It first introduces definition of loanwords and researchers’ debate on Chinese as loanwords in Japanese. Then, it briefly discusses sources and origins of loanwords in Japanese. The major part of the present paper focuses on how loanwords in Japanese influence its language development through a linguistic perspective, which is further developed from linguistic branches in phonetics, phonology, lexicology, morphology and semantics. The paper ends up with authors’ suggestions on future studies related to the topic.
