What, if I may ask, is "Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit"?
My apologies, I thought I had answered this question.
Anyway, Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit (BHS) is the name given by Fransklin Edgerton to a
Middle Indic Language (to which Pali belong) used to record some early Buddhist
Pali, as scholars now know, is the product of the fusion of a number of dialect and
is a literary language (Kunstsprache) specially composed and used during the 1st
Council to record the various teachings of the Buddha passed down to the early
Another such language is a kind of popular or "vulgate" Sanskrit used by the
Buddhist. It is not as complicated as the Vedic or Classical Sanskrit. For more
details, please see Edgerton's Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Dictionary and Grammar vol. 1
p 1 ff.

- Hi Piya and friends,
since we're on this topic, I've done some searching on the web and
would like to recommend the following sites in addition to those
already available on Tipitaka.net (under Tipitaka, Pali and Journals).
Most full universities around the world offer courses in Buddhism,
however not much information is available online. This applies to
other research areas also.
Some of the links I find useful are:
1. Buddhist Studies WWW Virtual Library:
2. WWW Virtual Library - Sri Lanka - Buddhism:
1. NTU Center for Buddhist Studies:
They have a list of journals:
2. UCB Buddhist Research Society:
3. U. Sunderland UK Association for Buddhist Studies:
(c) Indian Languages
1. The Indo-European Family of Languages:
2. Languages and Scripts of India:
3. Indic Languages:
4. Online Sanskrit Dictionary:
5. Indian Lexicon:
2. Pali Language:
3. Pali Literature:
I believe that these links are useful to Pali students, particularly
Pali/Buddhist scholars and academics. So, I have also put them on the
Pali Group - Bookmarks Section for easy reference in the future.
