A groundbreaking bilingual kanji thesaurus that provides intermediate and advanced-level users with complete, precise guidance on the distinctions between characters of similar meanings.
The Kodansha Kanji Synonyms Guide is the first-ever reference work to group together kanji characters that are related in meaning but different in detail. Arranged alphabetically by concept, these groupings let users focus on the often-subtle differences and similarities between them. Like The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary, and all of Jack Halpern's previous publications, The Kodansha Kanji Synonyms Guide is an innovative, authoritative, and impeccably-prepared resource that helps Japanese language learners deepen their knowledge of written Japanese, and provides educators, scholars, writers, and translators with an invaluable reference tool.
Editor-in-Chief JACK HALPERN is the CEO of The CJK Dictionary Institute (CJKI) in Japan. The institute is one of the world's prime sources for CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) dictionaries, and specializes in compiling comprehensive CJK and Arabic lexical databases. A lexicographer by profession, Halpern has spent more than forty years compiling dictionaries. He is the editor-in-chief of The Kodansha Kanji Usage Guide, The Kodansha Kanji Dictionary, and the best-selling Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary: Revised and Expanded. Halpern is also an avid polyglot, having studied 15 languages (ten of which he speaks fluently).
The book itself seems to be well made. The binding is a regular softcover with no dust jacket, and while sturdy, it doesn't seem quite as well bound as my Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary. The paper is a good weight, but not as smooth as other Kodansha dictionaries which makes it somewhat more difficult to flip through the book quickly. Hopefully with time and use, this will become easier.
