Ven. Anālayo wrote:In fact, the terms employed to define the supramundane path-factors of right intention, right speech, right action and right livelihood are precisely the same as those used in the Vibhaṅga of the Pāli Abhidhammapiṭaka. Notably, the Vibhaṅga uses these terms in its exposition of the path-factors according to the specific method of the Abhidharma, diferent from the terms the same work uses when it analyses these path-factors according to the method of the discourses.12 That is, from the viewpoint of the Vibhaṅga this type of terminology is distinctly Abhidharmic, difering from the mode of exposition found in the discourses.
Moreover, the treatment of the path-factors from a supramundane viewpoint in the Mahācattārīsaka-suttaqualifies the mundane wholesome path-factors as “with influx” and as “ripening in attachment”.13 Yet, the definitions given in the Mahācattārīsaka-sutta for the path-factors of mundane right intention, right speech, right action and right livelihood recur in other discourses as part of the standard definition of the noble eightfold path that leads to the eradication of dukkha.14 Thus, what according to other discourses leads to the eradication of dukkha, in the Mahācattārīsaka-sutta is presented as something that ripens in attachment and is associated with the influxes.
Thank you for the pdf. How do you locate suttas (as you did) in English from this resource?

i have 100 percent confidence that it was spoken by the Buddha.
