It was a Sunday afternoon when, having become frustrated by having to repeatedly search through several Pāli grammar books, I thought,
- 'Wouldn't it be good if Pāli word endings could be searched online'...
I thought to myself,
- 'It would be just a matter of reversing a few tables'...
How little did I know just what work lay ahead of me! Well, that's how Pali Wiki was born - all history now.
The aim of Pali Wiki is to provide a simple look up facility to identify all the inflectional word endings used in the Pāli Sutta Piṭaka. That is, the set of patterns according to which words in the Pāli language are declined, conjugated or have their endings altered to show grammatical content.
