Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Japanese are extraordinarily polite and soft-spoken people who are always indirect and evasive in their dealings with each other. Right? Well, not really. They can be just as explicit, vicious, vile and downright vulgar as anyone else when they want to be.

This little gem of a book teaches you hundreds and hundreds of Japanese taunts, threats, curses and expletives that you'll never find in any dictionary-showing you how the Japanese really talk to one another when they are angry or emotional. It leaves no taboo untouched and sets the record completely straight.

Intended for students of all levels and anyone interested in how Japanese is really spoken, this book is absolutely indispensable for foreigners who live in Japan and want to know what is being said when someone insults you in Japanese!

Synopsis:

Learn hundreds and hundreds of Japanese taunts, threats, curses and expletives that you'll never find in any dictionary

Synopsis:

Fun and instructive, this book is perfect for those looking to taste the flavor of informal Japanese, and those who want to shock or surprise a Japanese friend or enemy with a pithy phrase.

About the Author

Since 1941 Jack Seward has been involved with the Japanese language as student, teacher, and author of more than thirty books. He has also been a lecturer on Japanese culture and communication as well as a professional interpreter and translator. In 1986 the emperor of Japan awarded Seward the Order of the Sacred Treasure, Third Class, for his efforts to deepen understanding between Japan and America. Seward, a resident of Japan for twenty-five years, now lives in his native Texas with his Japanese wife.
