Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The perfect guide to speaking real Japanese

Beyond Polite Japanese offers more than 500 words and phrases for those who want to take a step beyond Japanese textbooks and speak like a native without spending decades in the country. Many of the entries cover traditional slang, while other entries take up more contemporary usage. Slang-forming prefixes and suffixes are also presented, as well as phrases that are commonly slurred, proving elusive to the foreign ear. Literal meanings, notes on usage, and etymology are included for greater understanding.

Outgrowing polite Japanese is not easy, but with the help of Beyond Polite Japanese, it can be attained. The helpful guide is also a welcome break from the standard fare found in Japanese textbooks.

Synopsis:

This text presents an easy-to-use student's reference guide to the most common colloquialisms in the Japanese language. All the entries and sample sentences are presented in romanized Japanese, with English word and phrase equivalents.
