Abstract

The changes and corrections made in various editions of the Book of Mormon were necessary to correct “typographical errors, misspellings, misplaced or dropped words, and ambiguities.” These original textual errors arose from non-standardized spelling in the 1800s, errors made by various scribes, editors and typesetters, and from the difficulty of communicating the things of God in the language of man.
