More About This Textbook

Overview

The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary answers the urgent need for an easy-to-use kanji dictionary compact enough to be easily carried around, yet detailed enough to satisfy the practical needs of the beginning and intermediate learner.

Its basic goal is to give the learner a thorough understanding of kanji by providing instant access to a wealth of useful information on the meanings, readings, and compounds. Normally, the learner must memorize numerous compounds as unrelated units. A unique feature of this dictionary that overcomes this difficulty is the core meaning, a concise keyword that defines the dominant sense of each character, followed by detailed character meanings and numerous compounds that clearly show how thousands of building blocks are combined to form countless compound words.

Another unique feature is the System of Kanji Indexing by Patterns (SKIP), an indexing system that enables the user to locate characters as quickly and as accurately as in alphabetical dictionaries.

Modern linguistic theory has been effectively integrated with sophisticated information technology to produce the most useful kanji learner's dictionary ever compiled. For the first time, learners have at their fingertips a wealth of information that is linguistically accurate, easy to use, and carefully adapted to their practical needs.

FEATURES
o 2,230 entry characters, including all the kanji in the Joyo and Jinmei Kanji lists o 41,000 senses for 31,300 words and word elements show how each character contributes to the meanings of compounds o 1,200 homophones with core meanings explain differences between closely related characters o 386 variant forms used in prewar literature and in names o 1,945 stroke order diagrams show you how to write each kanji stroke by stroke o 7,200 character readings, including name readings o Over 2,000 cross-references and five appendixes give instant access to a mass of useful reference data

    For all

    I have to admit that this is the perfect book for beginning learners like myself and many others. It helps you learn some of the strokes and it is easy to find what character you are looking for after using it for a bit. Now, if you really want a dictionary with even more characters, yet still easy to use then I recommend the book below.

    Great Kanji Learner's Dictionary

    I have bought this dictionary. Even though it contains only 2230 Kanji characters, this is enough for beginner and intermediate students.

    Very easy to use once you get the hang of it. Once you figure out the skip method, finding the Kanji you are looking for is a breeze. The stroke order helps me out quite a bit as well.

    Great for beginners

    This dictionary is clear and easy to use. Its new (SKIP) method of looking up kanji is as easy as they claim, and it concentrates on the 'everyday' list, so you don't get lost in more advanced kanji.
