View topic - Beginner''s Kana Dictionary
I found a great dictionary. The Oxford Starter Japanese Dictionary
I love it.
All entires are in Kana with a few kanji as additional translations. There is no romaji used.
In the J-E section the words are arranged by the kana syllabary and the translations are in standard English.
In the E-J section the words are in English with the translations in kana with a few showing kanji as additional translations.
It also has a brief grammar section and charts for "deinflecting" verbs and adjectives. This is a great help because when I read a word in it's inflected form there are many times when I don't know how to get it back to the dictionary form.
Admittedly, this is not a comprehensive dictionary with 5,000 words, however, at my level of Japanese study and comprehension I have not found any words that were not listed in this book.
This may be a dictionary that Clay may want to review for his store.

Ok... admittedly, I've just become a big fan of Kodansha's books (minus a couple). The company is a great resource on several topics that most of the other companies aren't writing about.
