The Japanese language and character particles, as seen in dialect:
Keywords:sentence-ending particles, first-person sentence-ending particle, expressing his or her own view, second-person sentence-ending particle, a way of polite expression
The article deals with the following three views and concludes that (1) the phenomenon in which a word related to the identity of the speaker (a sentence-ending particle with its origins in the first-person pronoun [“first-person sentence-ending particle” hereinafter]) appears after other sentence-ending particles may be observed in dialect; (2) the phenomenon in which a word related to the identity of the listener (a sentence-ending particle with its origins in the second-person pronoun [“second-person sentence-ending particle” hereinafter]) appears after other sentence-ending particles also may be observed in dialect; (3) the phenomenon of occurrence of the first-person sentence-ending particle at the end of the sentence has a different nature than the phenomenon of occurrence of the second-person sentence-ending particle at the end of the sentence.
