This handbook aims to present clearly and concisely the basics of Japanese verb construction and to demonstrate how verbs work within various sentence structures. Part One deals with the conjugation of verbs: regular, semi-regular and irregular verbs. Conjugation practice for the student follows the description of a verb or group of verbs. Part Two deals with the usage of various verb forms. Each usage is illustrated with example sentences. Exercises are provided intermittently to test the student's progress. Appendices include exercise answers, a list of sentence patterns, a list of verbs divided into regular, semi-regular and irregular forms and an English-Japanese dictionary.Über den Autor:
