Publisher Comments:

This book offers a new approach to the interpretation of Japanese grammar and provides a convenient dictionary of grammar-related expressions. It constitutes a standard reference for Japanese and is indispensable to the study of the language. This work is designed primarily for those who are not satisfied with the kinds of explanations offered in most textbooks of the Japanese language, who have already studied Japanese grammar but need more comprehensive information, who want to learn the distinctions among similar grammatical expressions, and who need a basic grammar review.

alchymyst, October 9, 2011 (view all comments by alchymyst)
Since Japanese grammar largely consists of sentence patterns (i.e. 'this is how you say you want something'), grammar points can be neatly arranged in a dictionary format, which makes this volume a great reference book. It's not a textbook, but rather a place to look up all those pesky grammar points that are not adequately explained in textbooks. This volume plus the Intermediate and Advanced ones are a must for your library if you are a serious student of Japanese.
