パーリ語というのは、スリランカ、ビルマ(ミャンマー)、タイ、ラオス、カンボジアなどに伝わった南伝仏教の聖典 に使用されている言語です。サンスクリット同様に仏教研究の上で重要な言語で、仏教学部のある大学では必ず講座があるはずで、勉強している人も多いと思い ます。もっとも大乗仏教圏の日本では、パーリ語よりも大乗仏典の言語であるサンスクリットやチベット語や漢文のほうが必要度が高いので、「サンスクリット の勉強のついでにパーリ語も勉強する」というのが実態かもしれません。
 それだけに、参考書の数はサンスクリットに比べて少ないし、しかもほとんどがサンスクリットの知識を前提にして書かれているのが現状です。サンスクリッ トを勉強してからパーリ語を勉強する人にはいいのかもしれませんが、パーリ語だけを勉強しようと思うとけっこうやっかいです。勉強の環境はサンスクリット に比べて整っているとはいえません。乏しい情報の中で独学している人も多いと思います。
