Japanese demonstratives in television dramas variance and invariance by Yasuko Ito Watt( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzes the distribution of 876 occurrences of ko, so and a in five television dramas (the duration of these dramas was five and a half hours). In the first of two major types of analyses carried out in the dissertation, the relative proportions of ko, so and a in the original text were examined. These proportions were approximately 32%, 57% and 11% respectively. Among these were three highly specialized groups (e. g., 82 uses of so as connector, 131 soo used in reply; and 12 ko as idiomatic expressions). After removing these special groups, the proportions of the three, major kinds of reference were 44%, 49% and 7% for situational, textual and internal references respectively. What is of particular interest is a reversal of the proportion of ko and so in situational and textual references: in situational reference ko is about 80% and in textual reference so is about 80%
