New Book: Remembering the Kanji 2 (Third Edition)

Book Title/書籍タイトル:
Remembering the Kanji 2: A systematic Guide to Reading the Japanese Characters (Third Edition)

James W. Heisig

University of Hawai`i Press

Available from the publisher's website.


Following the first volume of Remembering the Kanji, the present work takes up the pronunciation of characters and provides students with helpful tools for memorizing them. Behind the notorious inconsistencies in the way the Japanese language has come to pronounce the characters it received from China lie several coherent patterns. Identifying these patterns and arranging them in logical order can reduce dramatically the amount of time spent in the brute memorization of sounds unrelated to written forms.
