Be aware that, being a religious text for Mormons, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement it's best to be cautious in editing the page.]] This page is about the tropes used in the The Book of Mormon itself, not about determining whether the book is a fabrication or authentic.

* AnachronismStew: There are animals and plants mentioned in the book for which there is little, if any, archaeological evidence that they were present in the Americas before contact with Europeans. Critics of the book see these as obvious errors on Joseph Smith's part. Believers have various theories to account for them, including possible name-loaning (calling a tapir or deer a horse), or just believe the evidence hasn't been found yet.

correcting a misspelling of Joseph Smith's name
Jospeh Smith, a young farmer in upstate New York, claimed that in 1820 Moroni appeared to him as an Angel and led him to where the plates were buried. Joseph Smith, with the aid of an artifact also delivered with the plates called the "Urim and Thummim", was blessed with the power to translate the text into English and dictated the contents to a scribe. 'The Book Of Mormon' was published in 1830 and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was formed shortly thereafter under Joseph Smith's leadership. The claim of divine aid in bringing forth the book has made it a controversial subject ever since.

fixing a misspelling of synagogue
* {{Hypocrite}}: The Zoramites were this: Have a synagouge, preach about God (over 100 times with the same prayer), and never talk about him an entire week. They don't bother helping their poor and gorge themselves in their wealth.

replaced "King Men" with the king-men, looked to be unsure for readers if it was a group or the name of a king, the way it was capitalized
** Later in that book, the chief judge Pahoran is briefly driven out of Zarahemla by King Men. He calls Captain Moroni to put down the usurpers.

The text never identifies the ocean crossed as the Atlantic, in fact most Mormon theories are that it was the Pacific
In structure, the Book of Mormon resembles the 'historical books' of Literature/TheBible, being divided into a number of books which largely form a narrative, which is punctuated by accounts of sermons and [[AuthorFilibuster editorial commentary]]. It begins with a few families in Jerusalem, follows their journey across The Atlantic to a new "promised land" in The Americas, and then tells the history of the nations founded by their descendants, with emphasis on the preaching of the prophets, the spiritual condition of the cultures, and various events like several major wars.
