Welcome to White Rabbit Japan!
A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar by The Japan Times is the first installment in what many consider to be the most comprehensive resource for Japanese grammar available. It contains in-depth explanations in English and Japanese of approximately 200 grammatical concepts that make up the foundation of the Japanese language.
Organized alphabetically from ageru to zutsu, each grammar point is broken down step by step and includes abundant examples to illustrate context and usage. Detailed comparisons in the “Related Expressions” section differentiate from grammatical expressions that are often conflated incorrectly - so you can once and for all distinguish は from が.
The appendix contains surprisingly handy quick reference guides for hard-to-keep-straight grammar concepts, such as verbs/adjective conjugations, pairs of transitive and intransitive verbs, and counters to list a few.
Whether studying a textbook, taking a Japanese class or reading your favorite manga, A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar is the ideal companion, covering virtually all essential grammar concepts you are likely to encounter.
Also available for intermediate and advanced students.
