Publisher's Description

This is a clear simple and compact guide to colloquial, everyday Japanese grammar.

Basic Japanese Grammar teaches all the grammar you need to speak Japanese and understand simple spoken Japanese. Covering only what is essential, it provides an efficient way for learners who have limited time to learn Japanese and begin to communicate naturally with Japanese speakers. It is intended for self–study or classroom use. It offers a practical course in colloquial Japanese, but leaves aside forms that are unnecessary or little used as well as those that are more important for written Japanese. In short chapters, it helps the user understand the logic of Japanese grammar, while its straightforward explanations and clear examples make learning as easy as possible. The book include a glossary of grammatical terms and an index, as well as appendixes on Japanese pronunciation and Japanese verb conjugation. All Japanese words and phrases are written in Kanji and Kana (Hiragana and Katakana) as well as Romanized Japanese (Romanji) and English. Explanations are given in English.

Basic Japanese Grammar is most effectively used as follows:
  1. Start at the beginning of this book and read through it. Look up unfamiliar or confusing grammatical terms in the short glossary in the rear. Don't be concerned if sections are not immediately clear to you. As you use the Japanese language and hear it spoken, many aspects of Japanese grammar begin to form recognizable patters.
  2. Go back to Basic Japanese Grammar periodically. Sections that seem difficult or of doubtful benefit to you now may prove extremely helpful later.
  3. Basic Japanese Grammar is presented in a logical order, especially for the major divisions of grammar, and you will do you best to follow its sequence in your studies. However, the author is aware that some students learn best when they study to answer their immediate questions and needs (e.g. how to form the comparative; the conjugation of the verb to be, etc.) This book is able to accommodate both types of learners.
