Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to contribute to the developing strand of research in Japan by focusing on one of the classic variables in sociolinguistic research: terms of address. It presents a brief overview of the theoretical background and the main findings in previous research on the topic. The chapter gives a basic outline of the empirical study. It examines how the care workers in this study address the residents, and looks at the address behaviour of the residents towards the care workers. The chapter looks at the use of address terms in Edogawa Care from two complementary angles.

Keywords: address behaviour; care workers; Edogawa; Japan
