Abstract: "The New Nelson Japanese-English Character Dictionary is a major revision of Dr. Andrew N. Nelson's award-winning classic The Modern Reader's Japanese-English Character Dictionary."--BOOK JACKET. "Most importantly, the task of looking up a main-entry kanji has been simplified with the introduction of the Universal Radical Index (URI). Character entries now can be readily found through not only the primary radical, but any radical in the character. The URI, as a result, contains over 32,000 entries, making it the most thorough and reliable index available. Though created for the novice user, the URI system is beneficial to anyone frustrated by obscure radicals and difficult-to-remember "radical priorities.""--BOOK JACKET. "Another enhancement of The New Nelson is the expanded cross-referencing system. Each main-character entry is accompanied by the sequential position of the character in The New Nelson itself as well as a cross-reference number for the character in the Japan Industrial Standard (JIS) code and Morohashi's Dai Kanwa Jiten."--BOOK JACKET. || Reference works.
