Main features of the Grammar include: Clear, succinct and jargon-free explanations Extensive cross-referencing between the different sections Emphasis on areas of particular difficulty for learners of Japanese Both as a reference grammar and as a practical usage manual, Modern Japanese Grammar: A Practical Guide is the ideal resource for learners of Japanese at all levels, from beginner to intermediate and advanced students.
