Re: [Pali] Writing pali in devanagri/Roman scripts
> I am a beginner in learning Pali language and its subject matter & recently came across this yahoo group. I have downloaded some free e-books and guides on lerning pali and those are really helpful. However, i am not able to find any guide/tutorial/beginner's course on how to write Pali in Roman or Devanagari script. If anyone can tell me, where i can get the above resources, it will be highly helpful.
It might be easier to find such free resources for Sanskrit, since Sanskrit studies are more widespread than Pali. Pali uses the same Roman and Devanagari rules as does Sanskrit, with the exception that it is a bit simpler (fewer characters are used). If you can write Hindi then it's basically the same except that you have a short /a/ after every letter. The diacritics used for representing Sanskrit with roman letters are also the same as for Pali. Hope this can help.
