Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are
frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running
English-to-Japanese thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this
edition of The Courage of the Commonplace by Mary Raymond Shipman
Andrews was edited for three audiences. The first includes
Japanese-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program
(ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English
as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC
preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking
students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Japanese
speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience
consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies
in Japanese in order to take foreign service, translation
certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By
using the Webster's Japanese Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an
English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in
anticipation of an examination in Japanese or English. TOEFL,
TOEIC, AP and Advanced Placement are trademarks of the Educational
Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.
All rights reserved. Websters edition of this classic is organized
to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and
potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words
and expressions are given lower priority compared to difficult, yet
commonly used words. Rather than supply a single translation, many
words are translated for a variety of meanings in Japanese,
allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and
avoid them using the notes as a puretranslation crutch. Having the
reader decipher a words meaning within context serves to improve
vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not
