Saddaniti Chapter 1 (2)
- Dear friends,
thanks to Jim, Nina, George and Florent for contributing to the
I was able to have a good glimpse through Steven Collins' book in
January when I was in Singapore. The book isn't easily available now,
so I do not have a copy yet. However, I have made a copy of Appendix 1
of the book: Pali Grammatical Terms, which I shall use as a reference
as we progress through Saddaniiti. Examples from the appendix include
* aakhyaata, verb.
* dhaatu, verbal root.
Our previous discussions also highlighted the following:
* vikara.na, conjugational sign.
Hence, the chapter name: Savikara.na-akhyaata-vibhaaga, "Division of
verbs with conjugational signs", or simply "Verbs with Conjugational
attha-atisaya-yogato parattham-pi dhaareti-iti dhaatu,
meaning-distinction-(from) application / other meaning - too / bears /
"from the application of distinction in meaning too, bears (in) other
meaning(s)", (is) the verbal root,
attha (m) sense, meaning.
atisaya (m) distinction.
yoga (m) application.
