Though it was up-to-date when it was published, it naturally contains no words that have come kokkgo currency in the past quarter century, and as of this writing it has not appeared on CD-ROM or on the Web.

Yamada, who died between the fourth and fifth editions, seems to have been a misogynist cynic who enjoyed eating fish many of the definitions of fish names identify the particular fish as tasty, an opinion that may not be shared by all.

Designed to compete directly with Koujien, Daijirin is different in one key way from its illustrious predecessor: This paper, after briefly describing Kokugo dictionaries in general, analyzes a typical entry from such a dictionary to illustrate the advantages and challenges of the use of Kokugo dictionaries by learners of Japanese.
