The language used by Japanese people in their daily lives is changing rapidly. Words are being shortened and simplified, sometimes disobeying the conventional rules of the language, often adding new colour and meaning. This type of language, and the words in this book, are 'Real Japanese'.
Many words in this book can be considered slang, and while some may disappear in a year or two, almost all are commonly used in ordinary conversations today. Knowing them will help you to understand and participate in modern Japanese culture.
This book contain 1000 examples of Real Japanese. If you can master 30 to 40 per day, you can learn 1000 Real Japanese words in just one month. Words are organised into categories relating to daily life. Where there are multiple meanings, only the meaning relevant to the category is given, to make the usage easier to learn.
