Shogakukan Progressive Japanese-English Dictionary (4th Edition)


Contains 115,000 fresh example sentences. Greatly expanded in specialist terms and terms relating to current affairs, while feature columns on Japanese culture have been newly included.

The Progressive Japanese-English Dictionary (4th edition) is a complete revision of the acclaimed 3rd edition.

Both entries and usage examples are completely reviewed. Many new words, with an emphasis on current affairs and specialized terms, are added. Idiomatic expressions included in the dictionary, one of its long-supported major features, are completely scrutinized to bring out the closest nuances between Japanese and English. Furthermore, the dictionary introduces “Explanation” columns, a new feature that describes, in vivid English, Japanese culture, traditions, and seasonal scenes, such as manga, rakugo, sushi, and bon. Japanese content is loosely translated into English that can be easily understood even by junior high and high school students. The Progressive Japanese-English Dictionary (4th edition) is fully loaded with vital English expressions beneficial for both learning and business use.
