An Introduction to Japanese Syntax, Grammar, and Language

Product Details

Starting at the very basics and working its way up to important language constructions, An introduction to Japanese offers beginning students, as well as those doing self-study, a comprehensive grammar for the Japanese language. Oriented towards the serious learner, you will not find any shortcuts in this book: no romanised Japanese for ease of reading beyond the introduction, no pretending that Japanese grammar maps perfectly to English grammar, and no simplified terminology. In return, you get a book that explains Japanese the way you may find it taught at universities, covering everything from basic to intermediary Japanese, and even touching on some of the more advanced constructions. Michiel Kamermans has been running nihongoresources.com since 2003, and has extensive experience in explaining Japanese to the curious newcomer and serious student alike. Having started nihongoresources during his own time as a student of Japanese to serve as a place where people could read class notes and use an online dictionary, his efforts culminated in an online-only book on the Japanese language in 2006. With extensive edits, rewrites and additional content, this 2006 work has been transformed into An introduction to Japanese, in the hope that it may aid both those who are simply curious about Japanese, as well as those who are working towards a mastery of the language.
