>I'm a struggling beginner level pali student, and have a question please.
>In the lessons that I'm doing which are in the Narada Pali Course I find it very confusing when one has to go back and forth between chapters to look for the right Pali Grammatical Rule to fit a particular sentence situation or type of word, i.e. noun or verb etc.
>I am not very far into the chapters in the book, but I can see that my problem will only get worse as I make more progress and come across more and more rules.
>I've looked at other pali courses and the same problem occurs with them too, in that as an example both A K Warder, and the Lily de Silva, Pali Primer introduce their grammatical rules as the student progresses through the chapters.
>So, what I am wondering is there just like in `An English Grammar Reference' a `Reference Handbook of Pali Grammar'? That one can reference to identify in an alphabetical order these various pali grammatical rules that always occur, and must be used and finally learned.
>Thank you for your help.
