This online dictionary is prepared from the entries of multiple dictionaries as mentioned below.

මඩිතියවෙල සිරි සුමඞ්ගල හිමි, පාලි-සිංහල ශබ්දකෝෂය

The scanned PDF of the book used as the source is available here (54 MB download). To ease the reading, we have seperated the bandi akuru (බැඳි අකුරු) in Pali words. We also tried to correct many of the න ණ ල ළ errors according to the currently accepted Sinhala standard. Hal akuru were used where appropriate to ease the Sinhala reading. Other than that no changes were made to the original dictionary entries.

The book contains about 545 pages and about 25,000 entries. A partially typed list of entries prepared by Chanaka and his team was used for about 200 of those pages. Many volunteers helped in typing the rest of the entries and proofreading/correcting the full list of entries to make sure they match exactly with the original book. In total it took about 8 months to finish the project. The Dhamma donation (ධර්ම දානමය) merit from every lookup from this dictionary goes to all those volunteers who helped make this a reality.

This dictionary was typed entirely by Ven Galpotugoda Gnanavansa and he has kindly given it to us to be published in a website. Many merits for him for his enromous effort in typing nearly 19,000 entries. However he has mentioned that the text was not proofread after typing. (UPDATE: this is being proofread now and we will update the site after it is finished.)

It is entirely possible that there are further mistakes in the text. If you find one feel free to send us an email at adminpitaka.lk. We are also looking for voluteers who can build Android and iOS apps for the dictionary.
