Course Description

Course Objectives: Classical Japanese (Jp 100A-B) is a two-quarter sequence designed to introduce classical Japanese grammar to intermediate and advanced students of modern Japanese (Japanese 3C or the equivalent is a prerequisite). Emphasis throughout will be on the systematic study of classical verbs, adjectives, suffixes and particles, with the goal of developing basic reading ability. Selected readings from important classical texts will be assigned with the intent of giving students some practical experience in reading and analysis. Students will be expected to commit classical Japanese verb and adjective conjugations to memory, along with the meanings and usage of certain particles and suffixes. Quizzes and midterm will test understanding and retention. The final exam will be comprehensive, concentrating on points covered in reading materials and class discussions.
(This course is based on the teaching plan and materials originally created by Professor Susan Klein.)
