How many Mishnaoyot are there?
For counting purposes I am only interested in the counting of the author's. Meaning if the mishna puts two rules together under one halacha that counts as 1 and not 2. Also, I am only interested in published sets of the Mishna. I.e. I am not interested in how either the Talmud Yerushalmi or Talmud bavli breaks up the Mishnayot for this question.
I imagine that if someone has access to the Bar Ilan research tools the answer would be easy to find out.
I am curious to compare this number to other methods of counting halachot.
