      "Die Saddaniti enthält 27 Kapitel; die ersten 18
      werden als die MahA-, die weiteren 9 als die Culla-Saddaniti bezeichnet.
      In der Unterschrift wird ausdrücklich angegeben, daß das Werk, neben
      den Schriften der Acariya auf der kanonischen Literatur beruhe, aus
      dieser also den Sprachstoff entnommen habe."

      Geiger, Wilhelm: Pali Literatur und Sprache, page 37


      The German language text says that SaddanItti consists of 27 chapters and that the first part called MahA SaddanItti consists of 18 chapters and the second part called Culla-SaddanItti consists of 9 chapters. However, if one takes a closer look at

      http://www.tipitaka.org/romn/
      http://www.tipitaka.org/romn/cscd/e0804n.nrf4.xml

      one will see that PadamAlA and DhAtumAlA have 19 chapters. If these 19 chapters belong to MahA-SaddanItti, then Geiger omitted one chapter because he wrote "18". Is there any one who could be kind enough to explain me what happened?

      How many of them are there?

        There are a total of 28 chapters (paricchedas) in H. Smith's Roman
        script edition of the Saddaniiti, the last 9 of them (chapters 20 to
        28) make up the Suttamaalaa.

        Best wishes,
        Jim

            << "....the last 9 of them (chapters 20 to
            28) make up the Suttamaalaa. "
            .....................................................
            Is the other name of SuttAmAlA (chapters 20 to
            28) Culla SaddanItti ? >>

            Yes, that's correct. This also agrees with what W. Geiger says (p.
            55 -- translation). This part takes up about a third (pp. 603-928) of
            the entire Saddaniiti work.

            Jim
