An Elementary Pali Course in Velthuis Encoding
- Dear friends,
I have planned to put Ven. Narada's An Elementary Pali Course to the
Velthuis Encoding. With the advent of Unicode, Velthuis may be
forgotten soon. However, I think there are still those who will
benefit from it.

- 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.
