Re: The New Pali Course Part III [40/120]
- Dear Nina,
thanks for your answer to 18. The following is my answer, based on the answer key.
"Anekasaakha~n ca sahassa-ma.n.dala.m
"Multiple-rib and thousand-ring
Chatta.m maruu dhaarayum antalikkhe;
A parasol the gods held in the air;
YP: dhaarati/dhaareti (v) holds.
Suva.n.na-da.n.daa viitipatanti caamaraa
Golden-handles chowries fly up and down
YP: chowrie: a large fan made of feathers?
Na dissare caamara-chatta-gaahakaa."
The chowrie-(and-)umbrella-bearers have not been seen."
YP: dissati (passive of dassati) is seen. dissare [Parokkhaa Attanopada 3rd Person Plural]
Please refer to NPC2 Â§70 for Parokkhaa (Past Indefinite):
And, similar here, in this book NPC3:
I would like confirmation that I have been correct in the treatment of -re, which we have come across several times in the present exercise. Thank you.

N: <And the gods held in the sky an umbrella with many ribs and a thousand circles. Yaktail fans with golden handles fluttered up and down. The holders of the umbrella and the fans were invisible.>
Na dissare: from dissati, passive of dassati. This example is even in PED under dassati. But the form: dissare: must be an adjective? with a sandhi? I would expect: di.t.thaa. The ending -e is strange.

N: Thank you for your concern, don't worry about me. I had actually
fun looking up the messages. But what you suggest now makes things
easier. I am not so sure everybody follows these exercises and I like
to make fellow members enthusiastical. Anyway, you take a lot of
trouble to keep things going.
