Technical Japanese

Companion and study guide

Designed as a companion and study guide for the textbook Comprehending Technical Japanese, this book may also be used as a supplement to the textbook Basic Technical Japanese. It provides detailed explanations of the origin and meaning of the 500 kanji featured in CTJ, which were chosen for their frequency and significance in chemistry, physics, and biology. Each chapter is keyed to a chapter in CTJ, presenting twenty kanji, vocabulary that use those kanji, a kanji-card format for study and review, and the Japanese essay that appears at the close of each CTJ chapter, and its English translation. This volume also introduces significant scientific vocabulary that include kanji other than the 500 introduced in CTJ.

Edward E. Daub is professor emeritus in the Department of Engineering Professional Development at the University of Wisconsin–Maditon. He is the coauthor of Comprehending Technical Japanese and Basic Technical Japanese.
