Hi, I have been trying to translate parts of the Khuddaka a.t.thakathaa.
I can't come up with a good translation for:
kaa uppatti? It occurs over and over again.
I have thought maybe, "From where does it come?"
e.g. KN-a Sn, , 1. uragavaggo, 1. uragasuttavaṇṇanā, para. 84 ⇒5. ti kā uppatti?

Yes, Margaret Cone's dictionary explains 'uppatti' as:
f. 1. arising, coming into being, birth;
2. giving rise to, production; genesis, origin.
Wishing you success with the translation.
