THE KANJI DICTIONARY

"There is no doubt that "The Kanji Dictionary"] is a substantial, scholarly work an further confirmation of the considerable contribution that Spahn and Hadamitzky have made to Japanese language materials."--"Japan Forum"
"One very useful innovation in "The Kanji Dictionary"] is the practice of presenting at the beginning of each radical section an overview list of all the "kanji" which contain that radical...The authors are to be praised for bringing out such a reference tool."--"Journal of the Association of Teachers of Japanese"
"This is truly one of the most useful and quite unique trilingual dictionaries of Chinese characters to be compiled for non-native speakers of Japanese."—"Committee on East Asian Libraries Bulletin"
" Searching from any "kanji" in a compound] can save a good deal of time and frustration...a highly valued tool."—"The Japan Economic Journal"
" The] 79- radical system...is quite logical and rational...and quite easy to get used to...The book is user-friendly."--"The Japan Times"
The acknowledged authority on Japanese Kanji, "The Kanji Dicitonary" makes the Japanese written language more accessible than ever before. This is the only "kanji" dictionary of its kind to employ a revolutionary multiple-reference compound system. Every "kanji" compound, a word or phrase made up of two or more characters, is listed under each of its components characters. This unique, time-saving feature makes finding compounds fast and easy. Entries are arranged according to a radical based reference system, similar to that used in most other dictionaries, but is has been simplified to make it easier to learn and use. Also, the comprehensive "on/kun" readings index and handy radical "overview lists" provide further means to find an entry. The focus of this reference work is "kanji" compounds, and the more than 47,000 entries in the main text include the most common and most important terms and expressions currently in use. The addition of newly coined terms, particularly those in new technical fields, is another key feature.Features over 47,000 entries with an emphasis on current expressionsArranged for search from any "kanji" in a compoundContains a complete "on/kun" (Chinese/Japanese) reading indexIncludes and easy-to-use radical guideProvides appendices of counters, historical periods, common Japanese surnames, etc.
