Бүтээлийн товч тайлбар:
Japanese learners from non-kanji backgrounds find kanji difficult. In particular, as the number of new kanji words inevitably increases along with the learning process, it is important to employ various clues, including the radical of the kanji and the context, in order to deduce the meaning. This research was conducted over 9 months in Mongolia，focused on beginner Mongolian students of Japanese. Participants undertook lessons in kanji instruction where they were encouraged to guess the meaning of kanji words. The results of this instruction were scrutinised and compared to an existing group of students who received instruction consisting largely of explanation by the teacher. The results were analysed using retrospective think-aloud protocols，which measured the success of lexical inference and use of knowledge sources in lexical inference. Comparing the same data for the existing group of students clearly showed that，the experimental group，which employed lexical inference，demonstrated increased number and type of knowledge sources at lexical inference， reduced tendency to ignore unknown Kanji，and increased accuracy in the deduction of meaning. This research shows that the strategy instruction is possible for beginning learners and can improve their ability of lexical inference.
