Compare and Understand: A Japanese Expression Sentence Pattern Dictionary
This book is for Japanese language learners aspiring to reach an advanced level,
learners who are already at an advanced level, Japanese language instructors involved in teaching advanced Japanese,
and those interested in the Japanese language.
One major key to mastering advanced-level Japanese is the acquisition of expressional sentence patterns that include postpositional particles.
However, dictionaries and the like rarely cover such expressional sentence patterns.
Additionally, not only learners but even Japanese language instructors have a difficult time distinguishing between expressions with similar forms or meanings.
This book includes entries for 363 basic expressions.
These expressions are sorted by meaning and include example sentences,
making clear their conjunctive relationships.
The book also makes reference to 402 derived expressions that are variations on these basic expressions.
Along with the meaning of each expression, it is also compared and contrasted with others that have similar forms and meanings,
explaining them in ways that allow you to understand the complicated differences in meaning.
