Found on google books (https://books.google.com.mm/books?id=tH ... &q&f=false) a translation of Dhp by Carter and Palihawadana. It's a serious scholarly work, but what is interesting for pali learners is that they give almost literal translation of the commentary (not the stories, but word-by-word commentary of each verse found in the end of the stories in Dhp-atthakata). This is useful for those who want to learn how to translate the commentaries. In the end-notes (most are not available on google books) the authors explain some of the features of commentarial language.

If you decide to buy a paper book, make sure you get a long version (~500 pages), not the short one.

Once I made a synopsis based on Warder, Duroiselle and Geiger as well as Ñanatusita's grammar tables, since I wanted to have most grammatical information I need in one place and not to search every time through three big books. The synopsis became quite big (52 pages), since I also included explanations and examples, but I personally find it useful and consult often, when I answer some questions on Pali sub-forum usually I take the answers from there :). May be some of you would also like them (§ refers to Duroiselle). Can be downloaded from here.

Here is also the same in booklet format if you would like to print it as a small book (then it's only 13 sheets if you print on both sides).

I'm also attaching excel version of the table, which comes in the appendix to Warder, and has information about Pali verbs.

And I know it’s been forever since I posted my plea and you posted your response, but I’ll look into it now nevertheless. Thank you very much for the tip! :)

Thank you for this! It’s also available – as are Bhikkhu Bodhi‘s translations of the Anguttara, Majjhima, and Samyutta Nikayas (and Maurice Walshe’s of the Digha) along with various other of Bhikkhu Bodhi’s books – in Apple‘s Books app. I carry much of the Canon and lots of other very valuable Dhamma books around with me everywhere I go, thanks to Apple’s Books app.

A Grammar of the Pâli Language (after Kaccâyana) by Tha Do Oung

The whole grammar looks interesting, but especially the third volume which is a dictionary of Pali roots. For some it might prove to be a useful reference worth downloading and printing out.

I must agree. The video is amazingly clear for those trying to learn Pali and shows how poorly many English speakers (such as myself) understand English grammar.
