Part 6 of volume 4 attempts to recover the original text of the Book of Mormon by identifying variations in the text that have been introduced through scribal, typesetting, and editing errors and inconsistencies. This last part of volume 4 of the critical text completes the basic textual analysis of the Book of Mormon. There is also an addenda section at the end of this part (covering almost 100 pages) that treats a number of additional conjectures to the text and, in a few cases, revises the analysis for several items already discussed in volume 4. With the completion of part 6, it is possible to reconstruct the historical text of the Book of Mormon that is, the earliest text, including conjectural changes based on evidence from usage and scribal practice elsewhere in the text.
