Publisher Comments:

Essential Japanese Grammar is an indispensable study guide for students of the Japanese language at all levels.

Long the standard in Japanese language education, it provides clear, jargon-free explanations of how Japanese grammar works and offers hundreds of example sentences. It is an essential handbook for self-study or for the classroom and should be a valued resource for years to come. A strong foundation in grammar is vital to those wishing to learn Japanese as a whole.

Essential Japanese Grammar presents a number of unique features. First, grammatical terminology has been kept to a minimum so that extensive prior knowledge of grammar is not required. Second, abundant example sentences written in Japanese characters (kana and kanji) followed by romanji and English translations. Third, the authors have tried to reveal aspects of grammar that may not be found in comparable grammar books such as rare Japanese verbs, adjectival nouns, clauses adverbs, etc.

This book contains:

  • parts of speech.
  • sentence constructions.
  • conjugations forms.
  • speech styles and tones.
  • accentuation rules.
  • essential words and functional elements.
  • an appendix for referencing and cross-referencing Japanese words.

Synopsis:

An easy, compact guide to Japanese grammar, this comprehensive book alphabetically introduces the most essential grammatical phrases.

Synopsis:

An invaluable reference for students and scholars alike. Part 1 explains and illustrates the uses of hundreds of particles, key vocabulary, and other function words. Each entry includes many sample sentences in Japanese, romaji, and English. Free of dense grammatical jargon, Part 2 provides concise overviews of all Japanese parts of speech, polite language (keigo), counters, and other facets of everyday language.
