A Study of Some Pali Words in Sanskrit Origin from the Point of Polysemy

Dr. Thant Thant Nwe

As the increasing of words exists, the growing of senses of one word may occur in every human society. In human society, Sanskrit and Pi were languages once used in India in about sixth C.A.D. Although they are silent at present, they were popular languages used by vast majority of people. Sanskrit, which was generally familiar to the educated class of people, had existed before the Buddha appeared in the 6th century B.C. The Buddha, therefore, was bound to use Sanskrit words in toto or partially in the Pi language, which are mostly derived from Sanskrit. In derivation, however, the Buddha used the word either (a) in original sense or (b) in the new meaning. The similarity and difference of the meanings of the two languages are notable. In this paper, the Sanskrit words since they were used in the Vedic Age are collected. In addition, they are compared to their corresponding Pi counterpart in meaning. Then the differences of meaning between these two languages are presented from the point of polysemy.

Keywords: Sanskrit, Pi, meaning, counterpart, Rig-Veda
