      Emne: [Pali] Compound question

      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?

      Metta,

      Alan
