Title: Using Japanese: A Guide to Contemporary Usage
Written By: William McClure
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521641551
Description:

This is a guide to Japanese usage for students who have acquired the basics
of the language and wish to extend their knowledge. Unlike conventional
grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of vocabulary and
grammar that cause the most difficulty to English speakers. Careful
consideration is given throughout to questions of style, register, and
politeness, and there are sections on social rituals such as greetings,
introductions and apologies. Clear, readable and easy to consult, with two
indexes (Japanese and English), this is an essential reference for learners
seeking access to the finer nuances of the Japanese language.
