      Hello
      Are Puriso,Manusso,Naro, (and the plurals) pretty much
      interchangable? Or is there any reason one would use one over the
      other ? Seems that Puriso is used mostly for single, and manussaa for
      plural.


      Occurrences on the CSCD.

      puriso= 3469
      purisaa= 568
      manusso- 317
      manussaa- 2622
      Naro - 606
      Naraa - 241

      Thanks

        Hello Jayarava and friends,

        In Norman's translation of the Dhammapada, in his note for v.259, he directs the reader's attention to verses 8, 128, 168, 172 and 177, where there is the same consonant doubling of p before na as in v.259 (pamajjati to nappamajjati) after what he calls the 'proclitic' use of na. So the formation seems to be a regular phonological feature in Pali.
