Citing Rabbinic Literature / Rabbinic Literature Questions

KK So loooong story short, The only Jewish people I know are only ethnically Jewish. I’m trying to understand my SIL, her family, and Jews in general more, and reading up on Sefaria and etc. etc. Now, I just want to make sure I understand citing standards.

  • Mishnah (Either in Talmud or not) – m. [Tractate] Chapter:Paragraph (Mishnah = Paragraph?)
  • Talmud Bavli – b. [Tractate] Folio aka page number (any more precise than that?)
  • Talmud Yerushalmi – y. [Tractate] Chapter:Mishnah:Paragraph (idk Yerushalmi talmud. in sefaria, it was three different options. The way I understand it it follows Mishnah rules, just adds one further layer)
  • Minor Tractates – ??? No idea. [Tractate] Chapter:Paragraph
  • Tosefta – t. [Tractate] Chapter: Paragraph

And Further, If I understand:

  • Mishnah Chapter = y. Talmud Chapter ≠ Tosefta Chapter
  • b. Talmud = Mishnah + b. Gemara
  • y. Talmud = Mishnah + y. Gemara
  • Minor Tractates = Amoraic b. Mishnah
  • Tosefta = Deuterocanon Mishnah

That’s about it for now! Thank you all for reading this! I appreciate any assistance.

EDIT: added Bullet Points, and added location of Minor tractates
