"Unexcelled as a dictionary of basic Sino–Japanese characters. Extremely easy to use."—Japan Society

This is the utmost classic and well regarded standard Japanese Kanji Dictionary available today.

The New Nelson Japanese–English Character Dictionary is a complete revision of The Original Reader's Japanese–English Character Dictionary, published by Charles E. Tuttle Company in 1962. Long the foremost Japanese–English character dictionary, adopted by Japanese–study programs around the world and used at all levels of Japanese language study, the Nelson, as it is familiarly called, has been enhanced in this edition with several key changes.

  • The Universal Radical Index, an important advance on the traditional character indices, has been created as a handy appendix that enables users to search for any main–entry character's reference number in Morohashi's Dai Kanwa Jiten.
  • Over 1,200 characters have been added and more than 2,000 new on–kun entries included.
  • Definitions have been modernized to reflect current usage and translation.
Updated with additional characters, contemporary definitions, and an innovative radical index system, this revised editions sets new standards of excellence, easy–of–use, and reliability for Japanese language reference tools. This edition keeps pace with the evolution of the Japanese language and remains an indispensable tool for students and scholars of Japanese

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a reference which contains 700-plus main-entry characters complete with current definitions; about 70,000 character compounds; a cross- referencing system which includes the Japan Industrial Standard code number and the reference number in Morohashi's Dai Kanwa Jiten for each main-entry character; and the Universal Radical Index in which approximately 32,000 character entries can be found through not only the primary radical but any radical in the character.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This revised edition includes a radical index containing oer 32,000 entries and over 2000 additional readings in the on-kun index. An expanded cross-referencing system includes the character's index number in Morohashi's "Dai Kanwa Jiten", its JIS code number and character listing position.

Synopsis:

The New Nelson Japanese-English Character Dictionary is a major revision of Dr. Andrew N. Nelson's award-winning classic The Modern Reader's Japanese-English Character Dictionary. Most importantly, the task of looking up a main-entry kanji has been simplified with the introduction of the Universal Radical Index (URI). Character entries now can be readily found through not only the primary radical, but any radical in the character. The URI, as a result, contains over 32,000 entries, making it the most thorough and reliable index available. Though created for the novice user, the URI system is beneficial to anyone frustrated by obscure radicals and difficult-to-remember "radical priorities". Another enhancement of The New Nelson is the expanded cross-referencing system. Each main-character entry is accompanied by the sequential position of the character in The New Nelson itself as well as a cross-reference number for the character in the Japan Industrial Standard (JIS) code and Morohashi's Dai Kanwa Jiten.

Synopsis:

The first major revision of Andrew N. Nelson's seminal work, this dictionary has been expanded and updated to keep pace with new technical terminology.
