Does anyone have the book A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Sentence Patterns? I see that I can snag a used copy for less than $10 on Amazon US and was wondering if it was worth it or anyone had any feedback on it that had bought the book.
Just reading the description it seems very useful:
The dictionary contains fifty of the most fundamental Japanese sentence patterns as well as sixty-nine variations. This number covers all the patterns that are needed for levels 3 and 4 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Each pattern and variation is clearly defined by a formula given in Japanese, romanization, and English. Each is exemplified by sample sentences (both in single sentences and in dialogues), and each is represented in both polite and informal usage.
