Paper

Eleanor Harz Jorden and Mari Noda, authors of the widely used language textbook Japanese: The Spoken Language, now offer the first volume of the much anticipated companion to it, Japanese: The Written Language. This new series is designed to enable the learner of Japanese to establish a solid foundation for communicating with the Japanese through the written language. It is arranged so that each lesson coordinates with the lesson in Japanese: The Spoken Language of the same number.

This first volume, devoted exclusively to the katakana syllabary, which is used to represent loanwords in Japanese, provides the most comprehensive pedagogical treatment of the subject available today. Audio files and flash cards are available from the web, and a workbook is available for separate purchase.

Eleanor Harz Jorden is the Mary Donlon Alger Professor of Linguistics, Emerita, Cornell University. Mari Noda is associate professor of Japanese, Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, The Ohio State University.

Audio files to accompany the text are available at the Ohio State University website.
