JLPT Level N5 Expression List

I have compiled and formatted this Expression list (and added my own definitions) from the now outdated exam
specification book: Test Content Specifications (Revised Edition), The Japan Foundation and Association of
International Education, Japan (2004).
As of 2010, there is no official expression list. This list is an approximate guide (based on past exams) that is likely
to match requirements for the Level N5 exam.
