Abstract: The history of writing in Japan begins rather late, around the sixth century A.D. when the Japanese adopted the writing system of China. However, the Chinese logographic system was scarcely fi t for the representation of the language of Japan; therefore, various strategies were devised in order to represent Japanese adequately. Among such strategies, those intended to give a graphic representation of the texts of the oral tradition are mainly based on a phonographic use of logographs or a mixed system using both logographs and phonographs. The analysis of the attempt to give a written representation of orality by means of logographic characters is an interesting fi eld of study both for specialists of Japan and for all the scholars engaged in the study of writing and its relation with language.
