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 full loaded with vital English expressions beneficial for both learning and business use.
