thanks for the info, George.

Volume V of Helmer Smith's edition of Saddaniiti is not part of the text as written by Aggava.msa. It is an index (or concordance) listing every word which appears in the text. The same is true of Volume IV, which contains lists of citations (locorum) suttas (aphorismorum), roots (radicum), affixes (formantium), and technical terms (terminorum). All of these were compiled by Smith to aid readers of Saddaniiti (due to Smith's death, the entries in Volume V after p 1694 were finished by Nils Simonsson on the basis of Smith's notes). They are indeed useful.
