Digital Dictionary of Pāli

We are pleased to announce the availability of a digital version of the Pali Text Society’s new Dictionary of Pāli (DoP, currently covering words beginning with a – bh, written by Margaret Cone) on It joins the Society’s older Pali-English Dictionary (PTSD, Rhys Davids and Stede 1921–25), Monier-Williams’ Sanskrit and Edgerton’s Buddhist Hybrid Sankrit dictionaries, and of course our own Dictionary of Gāndhārī in creating an ever more comprehensive and up-to-date lexical resource for anybody working on South Asian Buddhist literature. We are grateful to the Pali Text Society and to Martin Straube for making this valuable addition possible, and for continuing to carry the Dictionary of Pāli to completion.
