A university level textbook of lessons in Pali. Material for the exercises and reading passages are drawn from the Pali canon. Known popularly as "Warder," this is the standard Pali textbook used today. It is systematic and thorough, ideally suited to those with some prior familiarity with basic linguistic concepts (case, declension, gender, etc.) or to the motivated newcomer. Although beginners may at first find some of Warder's explanations impenetrable, it's still the best overall Pali textbook around.
The companion CD is well worth purchasing, as it gives the student a good idea of what "real" spoken Pali should sound like.
Also available in softcover: Introduction to Pali-softcover
