A must book for those wanting to write persuasive English to native speakers
Native speakers often comment that English written by Japanese people is often difficult to understand because of certain non-idiomatic forms and other irregularities. The author has devoted over thirty years to the research of contrastive rhetoric, and he has taught at a state university in Minnesota, U.S.A., as a visiting professor for many years to a large variety of students. Through his study and experiences, the author offers a large number of practical exercises to correct the most common irregularities written by Japanese people.
