Here’s some brilliant stuff from Bob Myers on Kuro5hin (who thought anything useful would ever show up there???). It’s a primer for Japanese for Geeks . It presents the japanese language in BNF form and wow, it makes so much sense. You know, I took a year and a half of japanese and never understood the grammar half so well as I’m starting to now. Here’s the second part and let’s hope that he soon delivers part III… and maybe even more?
