Sutta and Vinaya Pitaka in full text

Postby Sekha » Sun Mar 25, 2012 10:22 pm

I am looking for the Pali full text, without any abridgment whatsoever, even in the long repetition series of SN.

I cannot btw understand why this has not been done in the main versions available online since it is only a matter of copy and paste.

Can anyone provide some help?

I do not think it has been done, even on any on-line editions.

I don't know why, but maybe something to do with respect for the teachers, or not wanting to make a mistake?

I think most of the texts on http://www.ancient-buddhist-texts.net have the repetitions put back in. But read the copyright notice carefully.

I'm not aware of any digital edition of the complete canon with the repetitions all put back in. It would be quite a job, even with cut and paste.

but still so much less than typing the whole thing, which has been done several times already (at least once by VRI and once for PTS version)

thanks for the link, but I am looking for the full Pitaka, in order to be able to count occurrences of words and expressions in the pitakas. So far all the attempts I made are somewhat unreliable because it is difficult to assess how many times a given word has been suppressed by the abridgments

I just did a DPR search and found 547 cases of " pe " in the MN and 1235 in the AN. And many elisions are not even marked with pe, just with ...

It's interesting to think about, though. I recently made a suggestion here
http://pali.sirimangalo.org/forum/50/feature-requests-for-digital-pali-reader
that the DPR include frequency information along with word analysis. Forgive me if it's a bit off topic, but are you interested in using the data for prioritizing learning?

The DPR allows having different sets of texts installed, so perhaps if you moved forward with the idea, you could create an alternate set. I would recommend somehow noting what was reconstructed.

I think that the digitized BJT edition sometimes elides things slightly differently than the CST, if that's any help.

that is pretty much the idea

actually I want to figure out what it is that the Buddha repeated the most and provide semantic analysis of these stock formulas in the line of this: http://www.buddha-vacana.org/formulae.html

I would like to have enough time to create a new version of the two pitakas, but I already have two translations projects on my shoulders, and I want to save time and energy to meditate properly
