There are three Alphabets in which Pâli manuscripts are written-the Sinhalese, the Burmese and the Kambodian. They all are derived from the Açoka Alphabet used in the ancient inscriptions of India, but represent a more current and an easier style of writing. The Devanâgarî Alphabet, which was used by Spiegel in editing his Anecdota Pâlica, is never found in Pâli manuscripts. We shall, however, for the convenience of those who have studied Samskrit, in the following table give the Devânagarî letters corresponding to the Sinhalese characters. Since Fausboll's edition of the Dharmnapada, published in 1855, nearly all editors of Pâli books in Europe have made use of the Roman character, as being easier to learn and less tiring to the eye. Unfortunately, a uniform way of transcription has not yet been arrived at in Pâli, any more than in Sanskrit ; but the method followed by Fausbôll and Childers is now almost generally adopted, aud shall also be uacd in Table of Contents CONTENTS; l'AGE; § 1 Ttte Alpiiauet1; § 2 Pronunciation 2; § 3 Vowels 4; $ 4 CdJANOE of votvels 5; § 5 Change op Quantity13; § (), Nasal Voxels 20; § 7 Vowels Added oe Dropped 23; § 8 Consonants21; § 9 General Remabks rkfeeiung to Consonants; of Different Classes 35 § 10 Consonants Added or Dropped „ 40; §11 Change of Consonants at the end of a; word 43; § l'j Compound Consonants4G; § 13 Rules on Sandui50; § 14 DeclensionC4; $ 15 Comparison of Adjectites 85; § 1G Pronominal Inflexion86; § 17 Numerals 91; § 18 Conjuoation95; Valaiiassajataka 128About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
