Excel@Japanese TextFugu Online Japanese Textbook Teaching reading IS rocket science - Louisa Moats Before you start reading, and before you start writing, you’re going to learn how to pronounce nearly all the “sounds” of the Japanese language. If you can’t pronounce anything, you won’t be able to read or write anything either. If you learn how to pronounce something while you’re learning to read and write it, you’ll run into overload. By learning pronunciation first (without knowing how to read or write anything) you’re essentially breaking the process up into smaller pieces and ultimately saving yourself a lot of time. In order to learn the pronunciation, though, we’re going to use hiragana. So, let’s get going, eh? 前 →

Japanese Cheat Sheet After 2 months of planning and composition (okay, so I did procrastinate quite a bit), I now understand how Moses felt when he descended Mount Sinai with the holy tablets. Behold, Nihonshock’s newly revised and much improved Japanese cheat sheet! This is a “cheat sheet” for the Japanese language. It is an attempt to condense and organize as many of the basic elements of the language onto one sheet of paper as possible. How do I use it? The intended use of this document is for you to download it, print it on two sides of one sheet of paper and keep it wherever you need it (in your Japanese textbook, on your desk, in your pocket, etc). It’s possible to keep the cheat sheet on your computer, but it won’t be anywhere near as handy or portable as a printed version, and you’ll need to do quite a bit of scrolling and zooming because of the small font size. What information is inside? Page 1 Page 2 Who is this for? This document will be most useful for beginner to intermediate Japanese learners.

The EDICT Dictionary File Welcome to the Home Page of the EDICT file within the JMdict/EDICT Project. This page has been written by Jim Breen (hereafter "I" or "me") and is intended as an overview of the file, with links to more detail elsewhere. Background Way back in 1991 I began to experiment with handling Japanese text in computer files, and decided to try writing a dictionary search program in Turbo C under DOS, which used a simple dictionary file contained in the MOKE (Mark's Own Kanji Editor) package. What is EDICT? EDICT is a Japanese-English Dictionary file. It is a plain text document in EUC-JP coding, with its own format (which has become known as "EDICT-format"). There are now two EDICT versions: the plain EDICT file. The EDICT2 file currently has about 170,000 entries, and the legacy EDICT format has nearly 200,000 entries (many of which are duplicates as all the permutations of kanji and readings generate distinct entries.) Download You can also use EDICT2 online via my WWWJDIC server. Publications
