Online Pali Dictionaries

Found a few resources for looking up Pali words.  There's books you can buy on this as well but the convenience of an online search database is great too.  There's a lot of Lao words that were originally sourced from Pali.  Though they've been changed and often are shortened in Lao language today.  So if you have an interest in learning where certain Lao words come from and what they mean, it'll be good to keep these links in mind.
