- Hello all,
In the phrase:
jaraamara.nassa ce bhikkhu nibbidaaya viraagaaya nirodhaaya pa.tipanno hoti,
`dhammaanudhammappa.tipanno bhikkhuu'ti ala.m vacanaaya.
Would "dhammaanudhammappa.tipanno " be a tappurisa or a bahubbiihi? I'm
inclined to say the latter since adjectives normally preceed the the noun
and because bahubbiihi compounds can normally can be translated as
"[noun]who is [compound here]" if I understand Warder correctly. Can anyone
affirm that this is indeed a bahubbiihi?
- Dear Yong Peng,
thank you, that is very clear.
