    The value given in WALS Online 2008 is not correct, see http://blog.wals.info/value-assignment-error-in-chapter-51-for-japanese/

    I coded Japanese as lacking case affixes or adpositional clitics in the 2005 and 2008 editions, but will code it as having postpositional clitics in the 2009 edition since I have been informed that the tone of some of them is affected by the preceding noun.
