Abstract

In medieval Japan, although transmitting intentions system with documents was advanced, oral communications existed beneath that. Moreover, these two ways were not necessarily opposed but made up the whole system of communications by helping each other. Therefore, we want to introduce such facts from some aspects in this session.
