Manual for Reading Japanese.
Crowley, Dale P.; And Others
This manual is aimed primarily at helping students determine the correct usage of the 500 most frequently used characters in Japanese. The characters are arranged in order of frequency of occurrence. This order is derived from a recent frequency occurrence analysis of popular journals, conducted by the National Language Research Institute (NLRI) in Japan. A student who masters all of the 500 characters presented in the text is expected to be able to read and understand a large part of contemporary Japanese reading material with relative ease. The importance of the characters and character compounds used to represent the language, as well as the most germane facts about each character, are presented on separate pages by ordering the pages according to the frequency rank order of characters as determined by the NLRI study, and by including on each page numerous facts about how the character occurs and is employed to represent spoken forms.
