Comments to eBook Japanese: A Comprehensive Grammar, 2nd Edition (Routledge comprehensive grammars)
Kefym
This book really fills a few holes left from other grammars. For example, in the section for beki, they mention subeki as well as suru beki. Unbelievably, some grammars don't mention this although 2/3 of the time, in Japan, you will hear subeki (I counted them on Japanese TV). Also, this book, as well, mentions beshi! This you also hear, especially in recent years.
In addition, very few books mention that kure is the blunt imperative of kureru. You would think that it would be kurero, but it's not. Martin's huge grammar of Japanese mentions this but almost no others. If you watch Japanese TV or have worked in a Japanese office (as I have) this is not uncommon. Katte kure, kopii shite kure and the like - a plain imperative used with an honorific verb - used all the time.
Also, their rundown on "nanka" is really good. I lot of books don't give this colloquial word the space it deserves. I could go on and on.
The only complaint I have is that, even though it is 700 pages, some of the explanations are a bit brief. But that is only because so much is being covered. I would give it 4 1/2 star really if I could because of this. Nevertheless this is a worthy book.

It's not organized very well. If I'm looking for a specific grammar point or pattern..it takes a while to figure out how to look it up.

make this reference easy-to-use. Half of the sample sentences are useful but the other half are rather strange or irrelevant. (They were taken out-of-context from media that's why). Right now I'm using this to review the subtle difference between "ba" and "tara" and the grammar explanations are pretty good. Some sample sentences:

Takakereba kawanai. If it's expensive I wont buy it. (36)
Kara wa ie ni kaeru to denwa o kaketa. When he got home he made a phone call. (39)
Kare wa ie ni kaette denwa o kaketa. He went home and made a phone call. (39)

This is a good reference for //serious// students. The high price makes it a waste for anyone else though.

Very good!

This review is only regarding the kindle version of this book. The information in this book is very in depth but the sentences in Japanese script are scanned and in most cases are so blurry that they are not legible--again this issue is in the kindle version. I can't comment on the print version. There are other Japanese grammar books in Kindle format that have this same problem but there are also some others don't.

This really limits the usefulness of the book in kindle format. Hopefully the publisher will release an updated version that resolves this issue so that the Japanese text is clear and legible.

This book is just what the title says, a comprehensive grammar. Unlike the first edition, which seemed to be ordered alphabetically by grammar point, this edition arranges the points in logical groupings which makes it much better for studying from. Also, aside from the initial 'dry' grammatical explanation, there are a number of interesting example sentences.

So how to use this book? I suspect many people will buy the book intending to keep it as a reference and just look up particular points when necessary, but I've decided to read through it from cover to cover. I test myself with every sentence, reading the Japanese example, and then translating it into English, before reading the English meaning. That way, I can practice not only the particular point being demonstrated, but also think about the meaning of other vocabulary and structures in the sentence.

I should point out that I bought the hard copy, and the second edition, so the negative comments about the kindle edition or the first edition don't apply. The Japanese print is very clear and a good size, and the grammatical points are arranged logically, as I mentioned above.

This is by far the most expensive single book I've ever bought, but I have no regrets at all. I just recommend that anyone who buys it makes use of it in the same way that I am and not just keep it as a reference.

Clear, concise and extremely comprehensive. I come back to this book time and time again.
Exactly what I wanted.
