Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase

Pronunciation guide is weak

The chart of handwritten letters doesn't really match the handwriting I see from native writers. No description of stroke order- something very strange to me, coming from Japanese.

No inline transliterations.

Spelling of many words varied from writing samples given to me by native speakers. In many cases, I was told I spelled like an old person.

There is no overview of the somewhat unique form of the written langage. Approaching it as someone familiar with alphabets and syllabaries, an abugida takes a little getting used to. It would have been nice to have a statement saying, yes, this is the normal order of the language. It also doesn't give you any sense of which forms are preferred when there are duplicates.

The grammar itself is solid. A more general discussion of the use of masculine and feminine forms would have been useful, because it is not immediatly clear whether it is the speaker or the subject that modifies the language. Examples eventually clarify this problem.

In spite of my whining, This is a great book, and you are unlikely to find anything better.
