NEW KANJI DICTIONARY

  A Component Approach to Study Kanji

     The New Kanji Dictionary (1988) by Yutaka Miyamoto helps make the often rigorous path to kanji
    Learning easier and more fun than ever. This dictionary is designed for the intermediate and advanced
    Students of the language but even beginning students can discover the relative ease with which kanji can
    Be learned with the aid of this timely dictionary
    The distinctive feature of this dictionary lies in the analysis and explanation of the meaning contained
    in each of the components that make up a kanji character, “Origin.” It then lists the meaning(s) of each
    kanji which almost invariably correlates with the “Origin.” A complete listing of the on-kun readings
    follow with examples given for each of the readings. Kanji dictionaries until now have only presented a
    rough analysis of characters by historical radicals and have failed to give explanations of the components
    which make up the character. It is our conviction that this reference work will facilitate the foreign student
    studying Japanese in remembering kanji by showing the student that kanji are composed of “parts” and
    not memely a muddle of lines, dots and slashes, and presenting a correlation between the combination
    of the parts and the meaning

     On another level, The New Kanji Dictionary offers insights into the development of kanji, and reveals
    through the explanation of the components ancient Japanese customs, historical events as well as hundreds
    of other descriptions of both modern and ancient life and culture

     Another feature of the dictionary is that it is fun! Quite as one might start to check a fact in an almanac
    or book of records and then finds himself reading on, this dictionary offers the same lure. The minute one
    takes to check some kanji, becomes an hour as one becomes more and more engrossed.

     Every serious student or instructor of the language should have in his library
