In this paper, I investigate lexical changes from Heian Wabun to Muromachi Kyogen using the Corpus of historical Japanese. The results show that the number of Sino-Japanese words and hybrid words increased significantly overall. The results also show that such words increased significantly in the high-frequency basic vocabulary, and that their semantic range expanded. These changes are due not only to the time difference but also to the genre difference. Based on these results, I discuss the significance of diachronic corpora for historical studies of Japanese and also some of the problems that arise.
