- Dear Ven. Pandita, Harry, Badra and friends,
it is also one of the objectives of Pali Scope to include the
paradigms of all verbs, nouns and pronouns.
According to the word list generated by Lennart (see msg#9807), there
are above 900,000 unqiue words in the Tipitaka. The long list takes
up 26,382 pages when opened in MS Word! I worked that out to be
approximately 976,134 unique word forms. Based on my understanding of
the Pali language and the texts, I worked out a conservative estimate
of 43,000 uninflected words (I suspect the actual number to be less,
there are roughly 20,000 entries in PED).
I suggest that we work together to set these up, which will be very
useful for Pali students.
