    One thought on “Japanese Grammar”

    1. I was not sure how helpful this book would be at first given its convenient, yet small, size. Thankfully the inner contents proved to be as pharaonic as the outer size was diminutive. The book was easily readable and demonstrated that it is a great reference book for Japanese grammar in a number of ways.The author did a good job of organizing the material and provided plenty of examples and contexts. Whenever a technical or linguistic term was used the author appropriately defined the term and t [...]

    2. As far as grammar books go, this guide by Barron's has the formula down pat. It proceeds in a logical and straightforward manner, never assuming you are a linguist when it comes to the lingo, and always making sure to give plenty of examples of how to use the grammatical devices it teaches.The book reads really well, and if you're interested in languages, then you could almost read it like a novel. If reading about verb forms and sentence structure isn't your thing, you'll be happy to know that [...]

    3. The first book I found that helped me make real progress with studying Japanese. Everyone has different learning styles, and apparently I learn better getting the gist of the grammar, as opposed to learning by phrase books or vocab elements. Of course, these all tie in together, but this book helped the best out of all the resources I've found. All sentences are in romaji (translations using English/Roman letters for Japanese sounds), in this case a modified version of the Hepburn system. You do [...]

    4. A helpful, basic resource for students in the beginning levels of studying Japanese. I have used it as a resource for many years now and I was grateful to revisit it this month. I will definitely continue to use it as a reference and guide. My only complaint is that I wished there was kana and kanji used in this book (even kanji with furigana would be great); instead, the book is only romanji. I think it could be a great benefit to students to have actual Japanese characters with the example sen [...]

    5. Remember everyone, it doesn't matter how many times you read a foreign language grammar book: until you actually start applying the language in a course and eventually in everyday life, you won't remeber enough to make a difference. Still, reading about the grammar on your own can help you remember what you learn in class once you start to really study.

    6. This book looks really good inside and I have high hopes that it will help me. My brother loves this book and was mad that I took it from his room after months of letting him borrow it, lol, but it's mine.

    7. A great and small Japanese grammar, yes that's possible! Besides, it relies solely on Roumaji (Japanese romanization), which might be a problem for some, but isn't a disadvantage in my opinion. Good book!

    8. This book is brilliant. For once, a grammar book that doesn't ONLY target formal Japanese (or ONLY sloppy slang, for that matter). The explanations WORK, and all the information is there for those willing to take it page by page.

    9. A great starter for Japanese grammar, covers the essentials and the bare minimum.Only drawback in my mind is that it's purely Romaji, no kana or Kanji at all in the whole thing. Just a brief two-page spread with a table of the kana.

    10. This is absolutely necessary for anyone needing a compact guide to japanese grammar.There's nothing else to say except buy it!
