A MANUAL OF JAPANESE WRITING, BOOK 2.
CHAPLIN, HAMAKO ITO; MARTIN, SAMUEL E.
BOOK 2 OF THIS THREE-VOLUME SERIES IS MADE UP OF 35 TEXT LESSONS AND DRILL SENTENCES FOR EACH LESSON, AS WELL AS A SHORT SECTION OF KANA EXERCISES. EACH LESSON INTRODUCES ABOUT 25 NEW CHARACTERS AND INDEXES THEM TO TWO STANDARD JAPANESE WRITING REFERENCE BOOKS (SAKADE'S "A GUIDE TO READING AND WRITING JAPANESE" AND SEKI AND TOYAMA'S "TOYO-KANJI JITEN"). THE STUDENT IS EXPECTED TO FAMILIARIZE HIMSELF WITH THE MATERIAL IN THESE TEXT SENTENCES TO THE POINT WHERE IT BECOMES VIRTUALLY MEMORIZED. HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO PRONOUNCE AND UNDERSTAND THE TEXT WITHOUT NOTES, WRITE OUT THE JAPANESE CHARACTERS FROM THE ROMANIZED VERSION, AND RE-CREATE THE JAPANESE TEXT FROM THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION. THE EXTENSIVE DRILL SENTENCES ARE INTENDED TO GIVE THE STUDENT FAMILIARITY WITH EACH CHARACTER IN ITS FULL RANGE OF USES, INCLUDING THE ESSENTIAL VOCABULARY OF COMPOUND WORDS IN WHICH IT OCCURS. THIS THREE-VOLUME MANUAL IS PUBLISHED BY THE YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 143 ELM STREET, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, 06511. (JD)
