180 Common Native Japanese Figures of Speech in Regular Conversation

Product Description
$21.99 USD
Maximum quantity available reached.
This fantastic book of rhetorical expressions, part of the popular Speak Japanese! series, is perfect for anyone wanting to pick up Japanese that is used everywhere and every day, but rarely printed in textbooks.
 
You may already know some figurative phrases like “goma wo suru” that means to butter up someone, but did you know “saba wo yomu”, meaning fudge the numbers? If you didn’t know the expression and heard that in conversation, you may be confused and wonder why someone was attempting to “read a mackerel”!
 
Japanese has many figurative expressions that are used to fully convey a specific nuance through a single term. Although such expressions use basic verbs and adjectives introduced in JLPT N5- and N4-level textbooks, they have a very different meaning when in such an expression.
 
This book features a good collection of such expressions that are particularly commonly used in daily life in Japan. The 180 expressions are divided into 26 categories to make it easy to find the expression that communicates what you want to say. The meaning, the background, and usage of each expression are also provided.
 
Each expression has its own page, with explanations about the meaning and the background in English, and bi-lingual every-day examples of how to use the expression in sentences. The layout of the book makes it really learn each expression, a strong point of all the Speak Japanese! series.
 
The book comes with a CD so you can hear examples of the expressions being used, but you can also download the audio by following the guide printed in the book.
 
A fun, yet incredibly inciteful book, that will both entertain and enlighten all levels of Japanese learners. Highly recommended!
