A primer and reader by A.K. Warder, 2016
Known popularly as “Warder,” this is the standard Pali textbook used today. It is systematic and thorough, ideally suited to those with some prior familiarity with basic linguistic concepts (case, declension, gender, etc.) or to the motivated newcomer. Although beginners may at first find some of Warder’s explanations impenetrable, it’s still the best overall Pali textbook around.
