Overview

Excerpt from A Grammar of the Japanese Spoken Language

This Edition has been thoroughly rewritten. It is also much enlarged, and is almost completely a new work.

More exclusive attention has been paid in it to the Tokio dialect, which now bids fair to become the language of the upper classes of Japan generally.

At the suggestion of a friend, a literal interlinear translation of the examples has been added. No translation, however, has ordinarily been given of the particles which occur in them. Their meaning can be found in the chapter on particles.

The author takes this opportunity of acknowledging the assistance which he has derived from the writings of Mr. E. M. Satow and Mr. B. H. Chamberlain. He is also indebted for some hints to Dr. Imbrie's Japanese Etymology.
