Basic English Writers' Japanese-English Wordbook.
Daniels, F. J.
The author of this Japanese-English wordbook suggests that it may be used by Japanese writers of English, by those translating from Japanese into English, and by learners of Japanese, in addition to its main intended uses as an aid to the preparation of teaching material and as a work of reference for teachers. A translator will need to supplement the volume by a "good, modern, all-Japanese" dictionary since this volume, with approximately 12,000 headwords, does not include all the Japanese words in common use. For learners of Japanese, the author feels that this work will tell them more about many of the important words than can be gathered from a Japanese-English dictionary of the "prevailing kind." Entries appear in Japanese orthography (hiragana), followed by their representation in Chinese characters and/or phonemic transcription. Glosses include extensive illustrations of usage. A list of the "Basic English" vocabulary upon which this work is based, appears on the inside front and back covers. (AMM)
