Dose any one know any site where I can subscribe to get email each day to learn new Pali word ?
From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating & wandering on. Long have you thus experienced stress, enough to be RELEASED.
The path is not about becoming a better person — it is about putting an end to becoming

Maybe you could find someone who wants to do this too....you could alternate every other day sending emails containing a definition of a Pali word (do remember to include a couple of examples of it being used) to each other.
When I studied education at university they stressed how being active is conducive to learning and how being passive is not. By passively waiting for a machine to send you a word and a definition is fine but it leaves you inactive and at a disadvantage in learning. By alternating days with someone it forces you to at least every other day to actively go find Pali word and to go find its defintion and to create an email land send it....you are active and thus more likely to retain the information.
