15 Textual Changes are as follows PLAN AND CONSTRUCTIONTextual Changes are as follows8. Remedies in each rubric have been re- alphabetized according to the alphabetical order of the abbreviation instead of the alphabetical order of the full name of the remedies.
16 Textual Changes are as follows PLAN AND CONSTRUCTIONTextual Changes are as follows9. Uniform arrangement has been used for abbreviations of the remedies throughout the book and in all the remedies e.g.- acet. for aceticum, acetica etc- ar. for arsenicosums or arsenicicusms- c for Carbonicums- cy for Cynatums- fcy for ferro-cynatums- M for all magnetas- l for lacticum- m for muriaticums etc.

At some places gradation or degree of drugs have been changed referring to Kent’s lectures, Lesser writings and minor writings. At some places degree or gradations have become higher based on printed and hand written information by P. Schmidt as found in his manuscripts and copies of Kent’s Repertory. At certain places gradations or degrees have also been changed by using Jost Kunzli’s Repertorium Generale.
18 Textual Changes are as follows PLAN AND CONSTRUCTIONTextual Changes are as follows11. Re-organization of Rubrics / Chaptersa) After speaking to many Homoeopaths the general idea has formed that the dreams are a substantial part of the Mind, dreams represent emotional impressions and train. So dreams have been incorporated in chapter Mind of Complete repertory.b) Kent placed Speech at two different, one part in Mind and other in Mouth. The reason might be that he wanted to make a difference for those rubrics of speech that had a mental or emotional etiology to be distinguished from those rubrics of speech that were more physiological in their etiology.
19 Textual Changes are as follows PLAN AND CONSTRUCTIONTextual Changes are as followsSo, many rubrics were confusing or were open for misinterpretation whereas in Complete Repertory every rubric of Speech was examined and was placed either in the new chapter Speech & Voice or under other main rubrics mainly Talk, talking, talks, when the etiology was a most emotional or mental in origin. The main rubric Speech under SPEECH & VOICE includes all those rubrics that relate to motoric part of speech e.g.- SPEECH. EMBARRASED (Kent p-81) has changed to MIND, TALK, TALKING, TALKS : embarrassed- MIND; SPEECH; INCOHERENT (Kent p-81) has become SPEECH & VOICE; SPEECH; INCOHERENTc) The bodily anxieties and apprehensions have been included in the chapter MIND. The reason for this is that, although felt in specific part of the body, it is still an expression of emotional value, e.g. Anxiety Chest in, Anxiety ; heart region of, Anxiety, stomach, in have been incorporated in section MIND of Complete Repertory.
20 Textual Changes are as follows PLAN AND CONSTRUCTIONTextual Changes are as followsd) Separate main MIND rubrics, talk, talking and talks have been combined into one rubric named Talk; talking; talks since they were inconsistent in their meaning and therefore confusinge) The sub- rubrics mentioning animals and body or body parts under the main rubrics Delusions, dreams and Fear have been put together under the heading: body, body parts or animals, e.g.Fear; Dogs of (Kent p-44) has become FEAR; ANIMALS ; Dogs of
21 Textual Changes are as follows PLAN AND CONSTRUCTIONTextual Changes are as followsf) In the main rubric Delusions many sub-rubrics with the same meaning were found out and their remedies have been transferred to the most likely place and wordings to represent that information.
