Level Up (A5E) A list without comment or context

I know this is a reference to something real, but here's what I got feeding the first list into GPT-2 (the machine learning program that was trained on the web, setting 'temperature' to the max to get more random results):

Staff + 15
Axe + 2d6
sword +2 melee attacks
Other weapon type
axe +2: Chain knife +2 or other dagger with sharp teeth
rope knife 5-7
Sword and shield
Sword: Battle Axe

With the second:

& several mis cel animation
Other/Not Applicated
,A set bonus is listed
with many (I I)
Nin ma oshi or acle t of d
, or the corresponding section
or with its original counterpart

Less pleasingly evocative, though it seems to realize it's in a rulebook.
 

Simpler's better for this sort of thing, here's the first list with a Markov chain generator with order 2 (the next letter is based on the last 2):

What does it matter what I want? I am asking about LevelUp.

There's 2 lists quoted here. The first looks like a list PHB simple & martial weapons plus many new weapons. Then there is a second list with only new weapons which include non-western weapons and other oddities.

The lists are presented without context, so obviously it makes us curious to know more about what is withheld. Such as: if some new weapons are shown together with the PHB ones, and other new weapons (tentatively called "exotic") are shown separately, does it mean that LevelUp has also new rules for acquiring proficiencies in weapons from the second list?
I answered you the first time: yes.
