Japanese Grammar Dictionary: Basic

By Cocoa Beans Ltd

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


“Japanese Grammar Dictionary: Basic” is meant to be a Japanese grammar quick reference list, with grammatical structures meanings and examples. It should be used from learners while studying or “on the go”, every time they got a doubt or need to know what a certain grammatical structure means or how it gets constructed in Japanese.

☺ Listed in the “New and Noteworthy” section of the Education category on the Italian App Store.

Quick Reviews:

★★★★★ “Essential for those studying Japanese! Very well done!” (

★★★★★ “I am a student of Japanese language at the University of Rome and I must say that this app is already proving useful for me! Recommended!” (user)



JGD: Basic is aimed to help Japanese language students providing them with a simple way to get the informations about some grammar sooner and wherever they need it!

In fact, JGD Basic is inspired by the amazing A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar (Seiichi Makino and Michio Tsutsui). Still, it is not meant to substitute A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar. I highly recommend to buy A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar in order to have a much deeper explanation of the grammatical structure presented in this App. JGD Basic is meant to be just a tool for common situations in which learners don’t have that book at hand (= most of the times).


JGD Basic include the following features:

✔ Quick access to all the Japanese Basic Grammar (more than 200 entries!);

✔ Quick search from Japanese or English (writing both in kana or romaji);

✔ Create a list of favorite entries;

✔ Quick access to the most important Japanese grammar topics;

✔ Examples and Related Expressions for each entry;

✔ Share grammar by copying it in the clipboard or sending it via email;


Other reasons to buy this App? We're already working on the next updates! The following are the features we are considering:

✔ iPad Support: this app will become Universal so you will be able to use it on your iPad as well!


✔ Italian;


✔ Evernote integration (to save grammar entries into your Evernote account);

✔ History: browse a list of the most recent grammar entries you've read;

✔ AirPrint integration (print grammar entries);

✔ Features and fixes suggested by our users!

This app is worth much more than the price. It has everything I've wanted from a japanese reference app. Don't waste your time with any of those other apps. This one is organized much better and easier to ubderstand.

Good list of grammar. Well organized.

Like what other reviewers say, the only problem we have is the examples. At least put in hiragana for better translation!

Nice grammar review app.

This app would be MUCH more useful if it presented the Japanese examples with either Romanji or Hiragana along with the Kanji.
