Contents The idea here is to list a few categories of vocabulary which are absolutely essential to understanding Japanese. For the most part, that means how numbers and pronouns work. Not only are those critical in all languages, but the way they work in Japanese is very different from English, so a dictionary alone won't cut it.

Zkanji Jim Breen's Japanese Page Introduction Welcome to my Japanese Page. As many readers of this page will know, I have an on-going interest in Japan, its people and language. This has led to a number of activities bringing together Japanese and my professional activities in computing and telecommunications. I have assembled this set of pages: (a) to provide information about a number of my projects in the area of Japanese computing and dictionaries, (b) to provide links to some of the resources available on the WWW on Japanese matters. In The News These pages were mentioned in an article in the Asahi Evening News, by Andrew Horvat, whose pages have a link below. Contact and Links Feel free to email me at: email@example.com about the various Japanese projects described on this page. Most of this page is made up of links to some interesting Web sites relating to Japan and Japanese information. Some of the links are dead; I am may try to re-establish them, but in the meantime I have marked them with a (thumbs-down.)
Japanese Reading Practice For Beginners Of course, there are plenty of resource out there to help intermediate and advanced learners of Japanese to practice their reading. They can use any Japanese book, manga, blog, or website and study away to their heart’s content. For beginners, though, finding Japanese things to read that are at or around your level is a pain. Either you study what’s in your textbook (limited and often times boring) or you don’t get to study reading it much at all. There’s good reason that beginners don’t have as much to study with, though. Since it’s normally pretty hard for beginners to find reading resources (and because I get this email like every day, it seems), I thought it would be good to put together a list of resources for beginners to study with. Have fun! Japanese Children’s Newspapers You probably know about newspapers for adults, but did you know about newspapers just for children?

Okinawan Language Chart Compiled by Rich Boyden and Ricky Rose Edited by Rich Boyden & Frank Cantrell EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a very crude list of words collected from others' compilations and from informal conversations with speakers of the Okinawan language. It is not intended to be exhaustive or authoritative. The editor reserves the right to make sweeping changes (especially to the very weak introductory section below), and he welcomes contributions from others and invites volunteers to send e‑mail to Rich: firstname.lastname@example.org or Ricky: Suiken000@suikenbugeikai.com Introduction Linguistically, the Okinawan language is related to Japanese, thought by scholars to have diverged between 800‑1400 years ago. Phonologically, the sound written in Japanese romaji as "e" is pronounced in Tokyo similarly to the "ay" sound in the English word "say" as in Naha, the sound is more like the "ee" in the English word "see." Grammar is also different. Categorized List of Grammar and Words Pronouns and People Descriptives Anatomy
