抄録: Many studies have been made on the internal structures of verbs and nouns, but less is known about the internal structure of adjectives. A close examination of adjectives suggests that some adjectives have complex internal structures like items in other lexical categories. In this paper, I propose the internal structures of adjectives in Japanese in the framework of Distributed Morphology proposed by Marantz (1997 and subsequent work). I demonstrate that Japanese adjectives come in four types in terms of their syntactic and semantic properties, and claim that each type of adjectives has a different internal structure. This claim reveals that there is a close relationship between the internal structures of adjectives and their interpretations; the internal structure of adjectives determines their semantic type. This paper also demonstrates that there is a correlation to some extent between the morphology and the semantics of adjectives in Japanese.
