In some cases we find a group or cluster of suttas (or Vinaya rules, etc.) that is, in the original manuscripts, grouped together. Such texts are identified with a range in SC, eg. sn12.72-81.
These are distinct from peyyālas or vaggasuttas (i.e. a whole chapter treated as a sutta).
Reason: I’m assigning a “type” to every entity in SC, so that we can match up vagga for vagga, for example, or recognize that a “samyutta” and a “nipata” are at the same “level” of the hierarchy. By convention I’m using Pali terms for all “types” that occur in the texts, and English for purely artificial constructs (like the division of suttas by 100s in SA).
Is there a word in Pali that is used for this? Alternatively might we invent one, say, gaṇasutta?
Related, is there a Pali word for a “class” of Vinaya rules?
