Twelve Clouds

26 12 2010

Inspired by the Sixty-Six Clouds that I blogged about earlier, I decided to make twelve clouds of my own: one for each of the tractates in the Mishna, Seder Mo’ed.

Shabbat

Eruvin

Pesachim

Sheqalim

Yoma

Sukkah

Beitzah

Rosh haShana

Ta’anit

Megillah

Mo’ed Qatan

Chagigah


Note the high preponderance of the title רבי, as well as the masculine participles אומר and אומרין/ם. Nothing too surprising there, but it is certainly interesting to note how each tractate uses its own register, based on its individual content. To obtain them, I copied and pasted from Mechon Mamre, and made sure to remove chapter and mishna numbers, as well as references to scriptural verses. I limited the number of words in each to 150 and, for the benefit of anybody else who uses Wordle, rounded the corners, set the ratio of vertical to horizontal words at 50%, and made the colouring “Firenze” with “wild variation”.

Enjoy!
