As international exchange grows, the role of language as a route to mutual understanding, likewise, continues to grow. For the past ten years the number of people studying Japanese in foreign countries has steadily increased. Designed specially for English-speakers in the early stages of learning Japanese, the Basic Japanese-English Dictionary fulfills an ever-growing need for an easy-to-use guide to introductory Japanese. Anyone visiting Japan or working to establish commercial or cultural links with Japanese people will welcome this flexi-covered dictionary. The dictionary contains over 2,800 entries which, along with providing basic meanings and grammatical information, also distinguish between senses, list compounds, and give sample sentences and idiomatic expressions. Based on Japanese language teaching materials, studies of vocabulary in common use, dictionaries, and consultations with people involved in teaching Japanese as a foreign language, the selection of vocabulary focuses on words in everyday use. It presents all the Japanese words and phrases in roman script with standard Japanese script alongside and arranges the headwords alphabetically. It also includes an English translation on the right-hand side of each page to enable the student to compare the two languages. Cross-references direct the user to words of contrasting or related meaning, and, where necessary, the dictionary provides notes on special usage. It also includes a useful appendix which gives an introduction to Japanese grammar. The Basic Japanese-English Dictionary will enable any new student of Japanese to understand more easily the basic vocabulary and to use it in the actual speaking and writing of the language.
