Free wordlists for use with Nihongo Machine

The following wordlists have been donated by people who are studying Japanese. We have converted their data to a format that can be used by the Nihongo Machine, but they have not been edited or proofed by the people at Silent Monkey Productions. So if there are mistakes or inaccuracies, they belong to the author.
