An instance of Textual-analysis deriving wrong conclusions!

I noticed just another conjecture from EBT group to which venerable Dhammanado had given an answer.

Can you give more about this and the digested meaning?

It’s a discussion of what proportion of the words in the suttas are commented on by the Commentaries, and how useful, therefore, the Commentaries might be in detecting possible transmission errors or reconciling variants in the versions of the Suttas that we now have. Much more detail in the actual posts.

As you presumably know, Ven Dhammanando has an extensive knowledge of the Theravada Abhidhamma and Commentaries.
