Japanese Reading Practice Using 日本語ワードネット
- About the Sentences and Phrases
- These items came from Japanese Wordnet (v1.1) © NICT, 2009-2010 .
- I included both the example sentences and the definitions.
- Please be aware that a notice attached to this data said, "We estimate that this release contains errors in as many as 5% of entries."
- Due to the nature of Wordnet, many English sentences are not capitalized and have no ending punctuation.
- About These Pages
- I sorted the items according to what kanji is contained in them, starting with kanji found on the JLPT (Level 5 up through Level 2), which is similar to the kyoiku kanji (教育漢字) learned in elementary schools in Japan. The kanji are roughly arranged in order of their frequency of use.
- Items are not included on a page if they contain kanji that have not yet been introduced.
- I limited the length of items to those with more than 3 and less than 40 characters. I also included only up to 50 items per page.
- No attempt has been made to limit the vocabulary.
- How to Practice
- Read the Japanese and try to understand what it means,.
- Then click it to see a translation.
- If you don't read Japanese well, use Firefox with the Rikaichan plugin to mouse-over any Japanese word to see its reading and meaning.
- How to Navigate
- To keep this "index" page a sensible size, I've only included direct links to a few of the pages from here.
- Use the Next => link to move from one page to the next.
- Bookmark the last page you read today, and continue from there the next time.
