Erratas are often used to correct errors in printing and writing. For example, misspellings or omissions can be fixed with an errata page attached so that it will not happen again when the book is printed again.
There are times when an error involves an incorrect attribution, information, or any other mistake that may affect the meaning of a tablez figure, article, etc in a will. When this occurs, the parties involved can choose to publish an eratta.
In the eratta, you will mention the significant errors as well as their corrections. It is often attached to the end of a book. Typographical errors, grammatical structures, are not meant to be added to the eratta as they are considered readable.« Back to Glossary Index
