About this item
Pali is an ancient Indo-Aryan language that was spoken by the historical Buddha and it is considered to be the sacred language of Buddhism. This handbook has prepared the complete ancient grammatical text of a language that has been used for centuries into a format that is accessible to contemporary readers. The Roman and Devanagari scripts are used for the main body of the text with its Sutta (short grammatical rules) also shown in Thai, Sinhalese, and Myanmar scripts. Thus, it will not only provide invaluable insight into the structure of an ancient grammar and its unique contents, but will also further make the study of Pali accessible to students from various language backgrounds. Also included are details of a system of how verbs are formed and a brief study guide in the introduction of the book.
