Like Buddha and Tathàgata, Sàkyamuni was a title given to Siddhattha Gotama after he became enlightened. Sàkya was the name of the tribe which Siddhattha was born into and the word muni means ‘sage’ or ‘silent one,’ thus the title means ‘the sage of the Sàkyan tribe.’

(Pali: Dhammacārī; lit., "one who follows the Dhamma")

is a term used in some Theravada Buddhist communities to refer to lay devotees (upāsakas) who have seriously committed themselves to Buddhist practice for several years. Dhammacaris follow four training vows in addition to the traditional 5 precepts that all lay devotees follow.

After initiation, Dhammacari's are encouraged to teach Dhamma School for children, give introductory talks on Buddhism, conduct meditation sessions, and organize Dhamma study groups. Dhammacaris with the proper training and background may also provide Buddhist counseling.

Hi David,
looking up in DPR dictionary:
# Sākyā. See Sakyā.
# Sakyamuni. An epithet of the Buddha. See Bu.xxvi.9; Mil. 115.
# Sakyaputtiyā. The name given to the monks of the Buddha's Order, as followers of Sakyamuni. E.g., Ud.iv.8; D.iii.84.

Where do you get Sàkyamuni ? This is a 2 part question. 1) The "a" with the apostrophe on top is supposed to be equivalent to a macron?
2) DPR seems to be suggesting "Sākyā" is not the preferred spelling?

'Once returner'

A sakadagami (once-returner) has eradicated the first three hindrances of the 10 hindrances to enlightenment and greatly weakened the fourth and fifth; attachment to sense desires and ill-will. Such a person will be re-born to either the human or heavenly realm and will attain enlightenment there.

This is an audio link to the word of the day, dhammānusāriī, to hear it pronounced by a monk (Forest Thai I believe).
I haven't been able to figure out how accents/emphasis(of syllables) work in pali pronunciation. In the word of the day, it sounds like there's no emphasis. The long vowels (ā, ī) are sustained longer, but no discernible emphasis on any syllable.
