A MANUAL OF JAPANESE WRITING, BOOK 1.
CHAPLIN, HAMAKO ITO; MARTIN, SAMUEL E.
THIS IS THE FIRST OF THREE VOLUMES WRITTEN TO TEACH THE 881 ESSENTIAL OR "EDUCATION" CHARACTERS TO ENGLISH-SPEAKING STUDENTS OF JAPANESE. THE AUTHORS ASSUME THAT THE STUDENTS HAVE ALREADY LEARNED THE HIRAGANA AND KATAKANA SYLLABARIES AND HAVE A BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF JAPANESE GRAMMAR. ORTHOGRAPHIC CONVENTIONS USED FOLLOW CLOSELY THOSE SUGGESTED BY THE LANGUAGE BOARD OF THE JAPANESE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION. ALTHOUGH RADICAL NUMBERS ARE GIVEN IN THE KANJI LISTS, THIS SYSTEM OF CLASSIFICATION IS NOT GENERALLY USED IN THE SERIES. THIS FIRST VOLUME SERVES AS A REFERENCE FOR THE TEXT (BOOK 2) AND INCLUDES--(1) A SHORT BUT COMPLETE INTRODUCTION TO JAPANESE ORTHOGRAPHY, (2) THE ROMANIZED VERSIONS OF THE TEXT LESSONS AND DRILL SENTENCES, (3) VOCABULARY AND GRAMMAR NOTES, (4) ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS OF THE TEXT LESSONS AND DRILL SENTENCES, AND (5) A KEY TO THE KANA PRACTICE. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THESE BOOKS BE USED IN UNIVERSITY CLASSES FOR HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS OR AS SELF-STUDY TEXTS OR REVIEWS BY STUDENTS WITH SOME FAMILIARITY WITH THE JAPANESE WRITING SYSTEM. THE THREE VOLUMES THAT MAKE UP THIS MANUAL ARE PUBLISHED BY THE YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 143 ELM STREET, NEW HAVEN, CONN., 06511. (JD)
