If so, any comments on the book would be welcome.
"The Pali Text Society is pleased to announce the publication of Part 2
of Margaret Cone's Dictionary of Pāli covering the letters g–n. This
is a truly significant publication for both Pali studies and Buddhist
studies more generally. The first volume of Margaret Cone's Dictionary
(2001) covered the letters a–kh, and thus overlapped in its coverage
with the incomplete Copenhagen A Critical Pāli Dictionary (the last
fascicle of which, ending in the middle of the letter kā, will be
published later this year). Part 2 of Margaret Cone's Dictionary of
Pāli thus represents the first substantial advance in Pali
lexicography since the early 1920s, when the relevant fascicle of T.W.
Rhys Davids and W. Stede's Pali-English Dictionary was published. Two
further parts of Dr Cone's Dictionary are currently being prepared,
and when complete the Dictionary is likely to remain the principal
lexical resource for scholars working with Pali texts for some
generations to come.
Both parts of the Dictionary can be ordered directly from the PTS
website -- http://www.palitext.com/
Part I (a-kh), ISBN
97808613394x, 30.25 GBP; Part II (g-n), ISBN 9780860134879, 40 GBP."http://h-net.msu.edu/cgi-bin/logbrowse. ... &user=&pw=
