about

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 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 shortchapters, it helps the user understand the logic of Japanese grammar, while its straightforward explanations and clear examples make learning as easy as possible.The grammar section includes a glossary of grammatical terms and an index, as well as appendixes on Japanese pronunciation and 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.
Everett F. Bleiler, born in 1920, was an editor at Dover Publications where this book was originally published.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Great book, very useful for getting off the ground and going beyond the beginner's phase. Note that this will help you through conversations and basic writing and other speaking environments, however it does little to help understand novels and songs written in Japanese that use extremely colloquial speech. Also, there are a number of typos in the hiragana text above some kanji, which can be very misleading if you do not double check it with the Romaji. All in all, it's really good. If you're looking to really delve into the culture with their entertainment however, I recommend you get a modern dictionary that includes slang as well as learn the beginner and intermediate grammar.
