jMemorize for learning Pali
- Dear Grasje and other jMemorize users;
Thanks for pointing out jMemorize.
I have downloaded it and will start using it.
[Note: My approach is to take a Pali text and its English translation,
match the sentences, make a list of the words in each sentence, and
then break the sentence down into its component phrases. The end
result is a big list of interlinear translations of Pali words,
phrases, and sentences. I then study these lists in my free time.
Before doing this I exhausted all of the Pali collectives lists. The
reason I am using this strategy is to broaden the vocabulary from the
standard textbooks and also to get more of the realism of actual Pali
texts. Right now I am working on the descriptions of world cycles in
Buddhagosa's Visuddhimagga (XIII).]
Anyway, it seems a simple step to take these textual decompositions
and to create jMemorize flash cards from them to test oneself.
One way we can make our work available to other people and share it
(besides sharing files at the Pali collective)is by creating a blog,
like mine below, albeit a little rough at the moment:
