Japanese The Spoken Language -book

Postby EricSC » Sun 03.21.2010 2:17 pm

Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm not sure if this is the correct sub-forum to post this but hey it's a "problem".

Some months ago I bought this book, "Japanese The Spoken Language Part 1" used. It arrived in what I thought was great condition. Today I just discovered page 344 has black pen marks covering EVERY single word on the page. I can't read one word on that page! After that I thoroughly checked the entire book and 344 is the only problem page.

Anybody that has "Japanese The Spoken Language Part 1" could you at least please tell me whats on page 344? Or if you're in a really kind mood, could you scan that one single page for me?

Thanks
EricSC

Welcome to TJP forums. :)

Some months ago I bought this book, "Japanese The Spoken Language Part 1" used. It arrived in what I thought was great condition. Today I just discovered page 344 has black pen marks covering EVERY single word on the page. I can't read one word on that page!

I'm sorry about that. :(

Anybody that has "Japanese The Spoken Language Part 1" could you at least please tell me whats on page 344? Or if you're in a really kind mood, could you scan that one single page for me?

I was wondering if there is anyone who kindly scan that page for you.
If you scan and upload the page, I think some of us might be able to decipher at least some words.

This is an all-romaji textbook though, so I don't think it's a question of Japanese reading skills.

Google books is often the answer for these problems, but they don't seem to have a preview of that book.

I butchered Japanese the Spoken Language vol 1 and Japanese the Written Language vol 1 back in my freshman year of college; I cut out each page and put them all in a binder for quick reference.
Unfortunately I can't find that binder now.
If it somehow manages to turn up I'll gladly post the info on this thread.

Meanwhile, on my book case I can only find JSL vol 2 and JWL vol 2.

Don't forget to check your local library, too. Not as convenient as Google, but still. ^_^

Yeah, the pen ink is totally covering the words. I don't think a scan would do any good.

Yep, page 344 is not on google books or even amazon.com's preview. Amazon.com let's me preview almost every other random page except page 344 :(

I think it might be on amazon.co.uk, but I've never purchased anything from the amazon.co.uk site so I'm not sure.

Unfortunately my local library sucks and doesn't have this book series. It's like Universe doesn't want me to see page 344 for some reason. lol

I'm mainly using JTSL as a secondary grammar reference, so I don't think I'll miss much by not having that page. But still, it would've been nice to at least read what was on that page. Oh well.

Perhaps years from now you'll finally stumble upon a copy of page 344 and find that it had nothing of value on it whatsoever. :P
