That's how I think the suttas seem to describe it, based on the Pali.
Come to the Dark Side, and learn some Pali....
I presume you mean beyond memorizing vocabulary? I've been doing that for a while. I've used some online tutorials for the grammar, but it's been a few months since I've done any assignments. I have a strong desire to read the suttas in Pali, and eventually do my own translating, so thanks for the motivational reminder.
I'm still a little shocked at how much interpretation
is involved in translating Pali.
