a web site that breaks down each word?

Postby alan... » Tue Apr 23, 2013 5:26 am

there are a ton of dictionaries which are useful but once a word has been conjugated and contracted it can no longer be looked up in a dictionary unless one knows what it's roots are.

is there a web site that breaks them down bit by bit? specifically by sutta quote?

a pretend example, since i don't know pali this is gibberish, but this is what it would look like roughly:

sutta quote: "abijjimsa viharatimassa metta"

translation: "one should practice loving kindness every day."

abijjimsa = a contraction of the words: abijha which means "one" and himsa which means "should".

viharatimassa = a contraction of the words: viharama which means "practice" and timassi which means "daily".

metta= loving kindness.

There's also the wonderful Digital Pali Reader (a stand-alone app for use on Firefox) though it doesn't give you the answers, it offers you suggestions, and it does make the entire Pali canon available.
