Martin Samuel Elmo. A Reference Grammar of Japanese University of Hawaii Press; Bilingual edition, 2003. — 1198 р. Have you ever wondered about a Japanese sentence your textbook fails to explain? Do you feel unsure about the use of "wa," "ga," and "mo?" Or what the rules and meanings of words in their literary forms are? If so, you will find your answers in A Reference Grammar of Japanese, the most comprehensive and reliable reference source available. With an extensive 105-page index, the reader will quickly find explanations for particles such as wa, ga, mo, ni, and de; difficult nouns such as mono, koto, tokoro, wake, hazu, and tame; sentence extensions such as ne, yo, sa, yara, and nari; verb tenses, literary forms, negative forms - in short, everything concerned with the Japanese language. For the serious student, this book is indispensable for clearing up the ambiguities of puzzling Japanese sentences. Review "A truly monumental work. One of the best reference grammars ever written about any language." - Journal of Asian Studies "A wealth of information has been packed between the covers." - Monumenta Nipponica "By far the most comprehensive reference grammar of Japanese in the English language (and perhaps in any language)." - Journal of Linguistics
