The Purpose of this list of variants is to provide dependable information on the variant readings among Book of Mormon words of foreign origin. We provide relevant details on each word discussed, in order to make it possible to judge which variants to take seriously. It is not complete, however, since published discussions are limited to the most relevant variants. An excel spreadsheet is planned and may provide the most complete list, covering every occurrence and how it is found in 0 ([[Original Manuscipt of the Book of Mormon.|O]] – original manuscript), 1 ([[Abbreviations|P]] – printer’s manuscript), and various editions. The discussion, symbols, and formatting here follow those found in [[Royal J. Skousen|Royal Skousen]]'s publications for the [[Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies|FARMS]] Book of Mormon Critical Text Project. See the list of abbreviations for information on publications.

ONOMASTICON VARIANTS AS DISCLOSED BY THE BOOK OF MORMON CRITICAL TEXT PROJECT

The Purpose of this list of variants is to provide dependable information on the variant readings among Book of Mormon words of foreign origin. We provide relevant details on each word discussed, in order to make it possible to judge which variants to take seriously. It is not complete, however, since published discussions are limited to the most relevant variants. An excel spreadsheet is planned and may provide the most complete list, covering every occurrence and how it is found in 0 (O – original manuscript), 1 (P – printer’s manuscript), and various editions. The discussion, symbols, and formatting here follow those found in Royal Skousen's publications for the FARMS Book of Mormon Critical Text Project. See the list of abbreviations for information on publications.
