I have a computer version of that and a hard copy and they both are not showing what you wrote.

I think I got what Bhima is pointing to. I have the Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English dictionary in PDF format. On page 340, at the bottom of the middle column, there are two definitions for the word, depending on how it is written. On the same page, at the top of the page in the third column, the third word is also written similarly, but with a slight difference and that is referenced back to page 334.

On page 334, in the third column, middle of the page, the word starts with ‘Khe’ and is used like a prefix to other words and there are a few examples given under that word. At the end of the 8th line from the bottom for that paragraph, the suffix is ‘-ta’ and the explanation is given.

I am wondering if the difference would be in the way how ‘ta’ is pronounced - whether it is a hard ‘t’ or a soft one. I am not sure if there is a way to show the difference between the two and the word is written in English. The ‘Khe’ on page 334 is also denoted as ‘kha’ but with an accute accent.

On the Wisdomlib.org site, if one scrolls down to the Sanskrit dictionary section, the first one in the last set of numbers gives the meaning of ‘Kheta’ as ‘moving in the air, a planet’.

But Sutra 1.2.11 also contains ‘Khecara’ besides ‘Kheta’.

In your Jaimini's sutras raw, how did you understand that, in certain sutra, the numerical manipulation corresponded to the Rasi or Bhava or Dasa length?

The rasi or bhava was easily determined by the context of the sutra. The bhava or dasa length is a little more tricky but in those sutras the bhava comes first, dasa length second. Luckily Jaimini just wants to torture us, not kill us 🙂

in pg 17 : " the following list gives the names of the Bhavas and Rasis that are to be ignored and ther numerically manipulated result, which indicates the actual bhava or rasi to be considered. (table)"

in sutra 1.2.13 pg 76(Pisces rashi) "ucce" (elevated) = 12 is in the table, and in the translation you consider "elevation". why? 🤔
