      Hi Dimitry,
      Thanks for your feedback on the declension table.
      Yes, I know it is missing some that are in other
      grammars. It was intended simply to be a summary of
      all I had learned so far in Pali Primer. No doubt as
      I work through Gair now I will find more declensions,
      and so update the table. And as I do, I will run the
      changes through you, since with your herculean
      translation task, you are clearly intimate with the
      contents of the book!


      Metta,
      John
