Abstract : The report gives the results obtained in the semantic and syntactic analysis of the Japanese particles DE, NI, E, WO, WA, GA, KARA, MADE and NO in comparison to their equivalents in English, German, and Spanish. The study is based on the so-called 'Correlational Analysis' as proposed by Ernst von Glasersfeld. The combinations of distinctive semantic features of the correlata with the relations are summarized in tables. A detailed and diagrammed description is given of two examples showing the transition from any of the four languages to any of the others in the translation process concerning the particles involved. The model is based on the logical functions of conjunction, dejunction, and disjunction as suggested by A. Hoppe. The Japanese particles - particularly DE, NI, KARA, MADE and NO have a wide semantic range. (Author)
