    Master Japanese Particles!

    This is an excellent book that can really help Japanese learners at all levels for a very low price. It covers all of the major particles in a well organized and simple manner -- from the common 'wa' (topic marker) and 'o' (direct object marker) to the more subtle 'zo' (used by men to add force to a sentence). 188 particles are presented, organized by frequency of use in the main body of the text, and indexed alphabetically at the end for easy look-up. Each entry is clearly presented with it's kana spelling and transliteration and a brief description of its use, followed by four or five well thought-out Japanese sentences using it in context. These example sentences are well worth the modest cost of this book alone! This is real Japanese complete with kanji, not watered-down classroom Japanese. The transliteration of the kanji/kana text is given above each sentence so you can pronounce the entire sentence easily, without stumbling over unknown kanji (a great aid to learning). This also makes it easy to look-up any kanji for further study -- like seeing if it's 'on' or 'kun' reading is being used in the sentence. A great plus!). You can really learn a lot of Japanese just from these examples, particularly if you're coming from the typical all-kana elementary texts. After every third particle or so there is a group of five or six fill-in-the-blank exercises to help reinforce what you've learned (and to also give you more great sentences!). The perfect tool for getting a handle on all those particles! This book is great fun for any lover of Japanese just to pick up and read, and should be on the 'required book list' of every student as well. At this price there's no excuse for not owning it.
