Description

Product Description

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. An essential handbook for self-study or the classroom, students will find that a strong foundation in grammar is vital to those wishing to learn Japanese.

Essential Japanese Grammar presents many 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 are 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 Japanese grammar 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.

Review

"The book is very useful in conjunction with Japanese language textbooks and if you want to better understand the construction of the sentences and the word order… Another thing I liked about this book is that its content is arranged in alphabetical order which makes it easy to find what you are looking for." — Japan Reference blog

"This is a very useful and informative book that is indeed essential for any serious student of Japanese…" — 8 Asians blog

Any language text with a subtitle of "Write and Speak ____ like a native!" makes me a bit leery, but this is a great text. No, it won''t make you write and speak like a native, but it will help you cement your previous learning and provide a bridge from elementary level texts (Genki I+II, etc.) into the intermediate level texts (for example: An Integrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese by Miura & McGloin). The book is thoughtfully organized with explanations and examples being clear and helpful. Also because the book is divided into learning ("Japanese Grammar: An Overview") and reference ("Dictionary of Usage") sections, it remains useful as a quick reference book for looking up particle (and other grammar) usages long after you''ve made your way through the learning section of the book.

I''m JLPT N5 certified and when translating Japanese light novels, I use this book as my primary reference when I come across something that I need to look up. While it''s not comprehensive (I come across usages that aren''t covered from time to time), this the best book on Japanese particles (and common use grammar) that I''ve found and I use it almost daily.

Grammar wow.
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2014
This is by far the best Japanese grammar book I''ve ever laid my hands on. And I''ve laid my hands on many a grammar book.

It provides an extensive number of examples, including examples for every particle and phrase structure in the language. It is extensive.

I am learning Japanese all by myself and making very good progress. This book is one of my KEY TOOLS. Indeed I find it indispensable. It has exactly the right balance between simplicity and digging deep into the grammar. If you use this book, you need to have some interest in the grammatical parts of Japanese . It is organized with some general chapters on Sentence Construction, Verbs, Adjectives etc. followed by an alphabetical main part on all kinds or words and expressions of importance. For each of these entries there is a good introduction of a few lines followed by sentence examples given in English and in Japanese in both Roma-ji and Kanji-Kana. I do not read kanji-Kana but look at the signs enables me to compare them with words in my general Dictoonaries and so they are of help. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anybody seriously studying Japanese. I NOW ADD to my review this: I am just beginning to learn some Kana using the book and the TUTTLE Kana Flashcards which I have also purchased. In fact, the book here reviewed has some "typographical errors" but it becomes great fun to decipher what is actually mreant using my dictionarires and the kana/kanji text in the book. I never though typos could be an indirect help :-) I am actually working the book in the way that I for each of the alphabetical entries make a Table in WORD with the following columns: English sentence,m Japanese sentence, notes and words used (two columns for english and Japanese version so f the wotrds). This way I get really deep and can reyturn to try the sentences, having help from my dictionary entries. Eventually I shall be able to print out the more important parts of the book this way. I cannot praise this book too much! I just now purchased also the TUTTLE CONCISE DICTIONARY and look forward to see how this will work.

While perhaps not as comprehensive as a certain well known series of grammar dictionaries, this certainly provides a much more cost effective alternative. The book''s split into two sections, the first reads something like a grammar textbook, where things like conjugation rules and word order are explained. The second part is a dictionary of usage. This is where you''ll find all the different sentence types that collocate with the -te form, for example. There are a huge number of grammar points covered in the second half of the book, and each point has numerous example sentences, all of which are glossed with romaji, for those whose kanji is not so hot just yet. I have used the book many times when I want clarification of a grammar point that I''ve come across in a textbook or online. Why not 5 stars? There are a few grammar points that were introduced in (very basic) textbooks that I couldn''t find in this book. And while this seems to serve the dual purpose of a grammar textbook and a grammar dictionary, I don''t think it does either of those jobs as well ad it could hve if it had focused on one of those alone. Would definitely recommend for self study, however!
