The use of the Japanese language is spreading around the world—not for the usual reasons (business, politics and diplomacy) but because of the popularity of Japanese anime (animation) and manga (comics). This handy book compiled by author-Japanologist Boyé Lafayette De Mente provides key words and phrases for anyone who has any interest in Japan or comes into contact with Japanese anywhere, anytime—from travel agents, airline pilots, flight attendants, Customs officials, bus and taxi drivers, hotel clerks, bartenders, host families and doctors to sightseers. Every word and phrase in the book is accompanied by English language phonetics, for easy, instant pronunciation. You just read or enunciate the phonetics and the sound comes out “in Japanese!”
