Dear Dhammawheel Sangha,
after surfing, as a amateur student of pali i would like highly suggest this two:
http://www.buddha-vacana.org/glossary - by far the most complete with references to suttas
http://dictionary.tamilcube.com/pali-dictionary.aspx - online english pali or pali english.Most everything is there. With combination of Concise pali dictionary.pdf - download on the net,basically you have quite the complete resources togheter of the whole pali words.
Have a good use of it
with great Metta

I have added a brief review of the Chaṭṭha Saṅgāyana Tipiṭaka Software to my Software Reviews site.

If you haven't installed this software yet, please do. It's a valuable resource for studying Pāḷi, and doesn't take long to learn how to use. My review page should get you up and running in an hour or two.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried to install and run it on Windows 8.1 64-bit and came across a few niggles.

It has to be run in administrator mode (right-click and select Run As Administrator), otherwise it crashes on startup. This problem shouldn't occur if the program is installed outside of the Program Files (or Program Files x86) directory, but the user shouldn't have to do that.

Technical niggles aside, it looks like a useful program that could benefit from a modern revamp. Being a royalty free program, it would be nice if the authors uploaded it to GitHub so that other developers could update and improve it.

Anyone interested in the subject of Pali prosody will also find the "Indian Prosody" section of Ven. Anandajoti's website a veritable goldmine:

Bhante Dhammanando, may I ask why it couldn't also be an "Early Buddhism resource"?

Hi Sphairos,

The moderator who moved it from Early Buddhism to Pali Resources isn't presently online, but I myself would consider it to be of more relevance here. After all, fewer than three pages of the book are devoted to the use of metrical studies in chronological stratification —the only topic that would be of relevance to early Buddhism studies— while all the rest is devoted simply to Pali metre in its own right.

Thank you.

The link doesn't seem to work. Here is the file directly from the Pali Text Society.

Pali keyboard for iPhone?

Posted: Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:30 pm
by not myself today
hi all. i seek The Deathless and a Pali keyboard for my iPhone. that's all i need.

oh and this ashtray.

and this chair. that's all i need...

:P

i've found an app called Unicode Map that will let me produce probably all the diacriticals used in Latin-alphabet Pali, but for each special letter i want to "type" i have to go into the Unicode Map app, tap the letter i want, which copies it to the clipboard, then return to the app i'm writing in and paste the letter where i want it...lather, rinse, repeat...it gets a bit tedious as you can imagine.

i've also found an app called Hinglish that provides a keyboard that produces some, but not all, of the Pali characters i'm looking for. naturally, my ideal would be an actual iPhone keyboard that includes all the Pali characters. anybody know of such an eAnimal?

many thanks... :anjali:
