Would we expect approximately 1,500 shifts in author or source throughout the Book of Mormon?

As part of their stylometrics analysis of the Book of Mormon, Wayne A. Larsen and Alvin C. Rencher found that there are approximately 1,500 shifts in author or source throughout the book. 

This includes over 100 authors or originators, 22 of which contribute over 1,000 words. 

How did Joseph Smith manage to dictate a coherent storyline with so many shifts in author or source? How did a farm boy with limited education on his first attempt achieve it?
