A Practical Guide to Pāḷi Grammar , by Ānandajoti Bhikkhu

"The guide that is presented here is based on tables and notes I typed up when I was first learning Pāḷi, which have rather surprisingly lasted in my work until today.

The emphasis here is on being practical, so rather than overwhelming the student with forms he will rarely come across, it is more important that he master the most common forms and meanings, and use reference works to find and understand things that are outside the scope of this work.

The tables and notes present the subject from various points of view, looking at how the forms are made, what is their meaning, and then giving examples so it can be seen how they are used in the texts themselves."
