Can anyone recommend a good basic text giving all the terms for the techniques in Japanese (transliteration, I mean, not Japanese characters).
I have seen some online, but they are not comprehensive. Not only that, but they often include the terms for throws and pins, but not for basic stance and foot movements, or the reverse.
If the text included the language of dojo etiquette I would be doubly indebted.

The Aikido FAQ website also has a thorough dictionary.

Thank you, Jun and Gregory, for your replies.
I wonder whether there are other sources for the information I am looking for, so that I can have a wider choice. Especially, I would like to find a book that has the terms set out.
Can anyone help?

What style of aikido do you practice? It would be easier to make recommendations if we knew--vocabulary varies considerably among styles.
