It has been said that Japanese is 80% verbs and their endings. Japanese Verbs: Saying What You Mean guides the student of Japanese through the verbs, along with their various forms and conjugations, in short, clear lessons. While the book is written to be "beginner friendly," it is also packed with tips concerning the actual use of the language in modern settings, which will be useful to students well advanced in their study of the language.

Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese Verbs: Saying What You Mean?

One of the finest books for intro to japanese  Jun 15, 2008
I started learning Japanese last summer. In the past year I ordered may be 20 introduction level Japanese books. This one is among the ones I read most often (beside Japanese dicitionary). It is very well written and easy to understand with a lot of examples for each of the different verb forms. You will find yourself still be able to pick up something even when you are skipping chapters because each indiviuals lesson is organized very well. So when you are reading some Japanese book and find yourself stuck by some verb form that you don't understand, you can go ahead and find the answer without flipping back and forth looking up some other unknown terminology. This book is well worth the price.
Solid Reference  Dec 13, 2007
I bought this book because I started teaching myself Japanese with the Pimsleur audio series. The series is a great way to practice hearing and speaking a new language, but despite claims to the contrary, I think you really have to learn the grammar if you want to speak competently. I found this book to be a great supplement for exactly that reason. Whenever I ran into a verb construction in a specific context, I could always look it up in here and learn the details of application and how to generalize the expression.

It's absolutely worth the price to have around.
You can REALLY say what you mean with this book  Jul 3, 2007
I purchased this book a year ago and actually started using it a couple of weeks ago...My only regret now is to have not opened it much much sooner. This verb book is fantastic. SHort lessons with straight-to-the point illustrations. Japanese language suddenly appeared to me much easier than i thought.
A must-have.
Great Book  Jan 12, 2007
This Book it one of the best book ever if you ever want to learn the Japanese Language! It's better than many others out there for several reasons:
1. It has romanji... But it is only there because it has all the rest in full Japanese Script, Kanji and all.
2. Very east to study, all layed out very nicely.
3. Provides insights into Japanese Culture.

All and all, i suggest this book to anyone serious in the study of japanese.
Outstanding book!  Jul 9, 2006
I've had this book for over a year now and have had a chance to really wear the pages down. I must say that the lessons are structured very well and are short enough to make review a painless task.

Something Mr. Matheson states in it is that Japanese is really made up of about 80% verbs and their various conjugations. That was a revelation that really helped to take me to a higher level in my studies. I regret not finding this tool earlier in my learning. The cover may not be too fancy, but we all know the old saying about judging books by their covers.

If you are just starting out on learning Japanese, you really owe it to yourself to get a copy of this right away. It'll help you grasp concepts much earlier on. Its worth its weight in gold.
