Japanese in the Age of Technology __ "Some languages can be written in only 26 characters, while others require several thousand characters for everyday purposes. Languages of the first type are easy to automate; not so the latter. As they have advanced from letterpress printing to the typewriter to the word processor, people who use non-Roman alphabets have always faced a daunting task in adapting their written languages to the latest technology. The struggle continues on the Internet today." Learn about things are being handled. - from DNP - http://www.honco.net/japanese/index.html

Japanese Language __ "...However, unlike other languages, Japanese is unique to both linguists and to the people speaking the language. The Japanese by and large believe their language to be a highly unique language—some believe it to be unlike any other language in existence. Western linguists believe that Japanese is a language clearly related to other, Northern Asian languages, but there is a fair amount of disagreement among them. Suffice it to say that Japanese is the only human language where we can't quite decide where it came from or what other languages it's related to."

Japanese language __ "Historical linguists who specialize in Japanese agree that it is one of the two members of the Japonic language family, but remain divided as to the origins of the Japonic languages.
