Considering that every Japanese speech act (even today) encodes markers of hierarchical and personal relationship between speaker and hearer, how were Japanese writers to reproduce that transparent narrative frame? What sort of linguistic shape would such a sentence have in Japanese? Would readers understand it, or would they be frustrated by their inability to read the narrator’s and their own “position” in the social web? Journalists, historians, and essayists, too, realized that the similitude of objectivity that was achieved in Western languages was a useful thing—but how were they to replicate it in a language where every speech act makes its subjective The Problem of the Modern Subject 29 point of view obvious on its linguistic surface?
These helped to communicate AngloEuropean notions of the nation-state to Japanese readers, and further helped to underscore the important potential interrelationship between literature, politics, and nationhood. When the 1890 constitution was enacted, however, based on the Prussian and British models of constitutional monarchy, the old formation of hierarchically determined loyalties, operating simultaneously at national, local, and household levels, returned to dominance. The constitution and subsequent policy documents, such as the 1890 Imperial Rescript on Education, institutionalized the kazoku kokka (the family state), in which the emperor was figured as head of the national family, with absolute power and authority, and all his subjects were figured as his children.
Words for important concepts were adopted from various languages: part-time work, for example, became arubaito, after the German Arbeit. This willingness to introduce “loanwords” from other languages gave Japanese a useful flexibility, a way of increasing lexical items quickly and efficiently. In contrast, this practice was virtually nonexistent in Chinese, which made language modernization in China, particularly in technical and scientific areas, far more cumbersome as new words had to be created out of existing elements of language—each of which carried inescapable traditional cultural connotations.
