The “Expanded Digital Edition of the Youth Progressive English-Japanese Dictionary” is a revised digital edition of the 2004 edition of the “Youth Progressive English-Japanese Dictionary” that can be used with digital equipment such as personal computers, smartphones and tablets as a part of the JapanKnowledge School contents.
The “Youth Progressive English-Japanese Dictionary” was one of the first dictionaries to make use of the English corpus (a huge digital database of English expressions) in editing, making this an English-Japanese learners’ dictionary that contains a wealth of information on expressions useful for learning English.
Since this new edition is a digital edition, and therefore has no restriction on the number of pages, as well as updating entries to reflect the latest information, the dictionary includes a greatly expanded number of usage examples (especially example sentences). The “translation term navigator” devised for polysemous words, words that have many different meanings, not only makes it possible to list translation terms that one wishes to remember but also enables an instantaneous jump to the entry in the main text by use of a jump function. Furthermore, as the explanatory columns on expressions are classified into “Notes for Expressions,” “Notes on Sentence Structure” and “Differences in Expressions,” they are very readable and aid users to deepen understanding. Audio data has also been added to roughly 14,000 words, so one can acquire correct pronunciation while looking at the entries and phonetic symbols.
The search function enables searches for word entries as well as for idioms and examples of usage. As it is possible to search for Japanese included in translation terms, idioms and examples of word usage by entering Japanese into search terms, we invite you to make use of this function as your original tool for finding the information you need by trying out various types of searches.
