Re: Pali Day by Day 3/31/2005 [D137]
- Dear Gunnar and friends,
thanks for pointing that out, I will be more careful with details
like this in future. Hence:
There are thirty days in one month, and twelve months in one year.
honti / ti.msa / divasaa / ekasmi.m / maase / pana / dvaadasaa /
maasaa / ekasmi.m / vasse
Ekasmi.m maase ti.msa divasaa honti, ekasmi.m vasse pana dvaadasaa

Is it possible to begin a phrase by "pana"? I thought it is enclitic
(thus "ekasmi.m pana vasse...)
- 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.
