[1] Khippabhinnanam. Woodward has "abnormal powers", PED says "intuition", I go with PED here as the powers classed under The Abhinna are intuitive in nature -- e.g. "hearing" the root meanings of words; however, see his story, where he would hardly have had time to demonstrate such powers, and where the meaning is probably stated most accurately.

[2] Cittakathikanam. as per Woodward...cittakathikanam could be who shines at speaking.

[3] Patisambhidappattanam. PED: pati + sam + bhid (= vid); lit. resolving continuous breaking up" i.e. analysis, analytic insight, discriminating knowledge... Always referred to as "the four branches of logical analysis" see #179 n7. Given the word alone I would think of Hegelian dialectic: thesis, antithesis, synthesis.

[4] Satimantanam.

[5] Gatimantanam. Does it [gets it] like he thinks it. Our 'Walks it like he talks it.'

[6] Dhitimantanam. 'Has the courage of his convictions.'
PED: Dhiti: energy, courage, steadfastness, firm character, resolution.

[7] Appabadhanam. Who hears appamada...With a cold? One who suffers few illnesses.

[8] Pubbenivasam anussarantanam. See: The Pali Line, The 10th Question: Knowledge of Former Habitations

[9] Indriyesu-gutta-dvaranam. See: The Pali Line: Gradual Course: Guarding the Senses.

[10] Tejo-dhatukusalanam.
