What is an errata after the items on it have been corrected?

What is an errata after the items on it have been corrected?

What is an errata after the items on it have been corrected?

(OP)
An “errata” is a list of errors that were found in a document or book after it has been published.

Is there a name for that list of errors after they have been corrected?

That is to say, if we want to provide a list of the items that were in the errata of edition 1 that have been corrected in edition 2, what is the name for that list?

RE: What is an errata after the items on it have been corrected?

MintJulep,

Do we care? If I have the old errata, I can check through it to make sure the corrections have been done in the new edition.

I would use the errata as the list. After the corrections are done, we do not need to highlight them.

RE: What is an errata after the items on it have been corrected?

Not sure that is really what you want. From Webster:

Definition of CORRIGENDUM
: an error in a printed work discovered after printing and shown with its correction on a separate sheet

Definition of ERRATA
: a list of corrigenda

On a drawing, I've always called the list of changes the "alteration record". Not all of the changes are errata but some may be.

On Drawings we simply called them 'Revisions' which can cover a broad range of sins.

Never heard of the word... Sounds like a colloquialism for "Incorrigible Agenda".

We use the term "List of Revisions"
After the "Revisions" Page, we have a "List of Revisions" Paragraph or Page listing what has been changed & Reason for the Change, by page # and/or Paragraph #.
This was at the request of our FAA Rep.

Say we have document A, errata Ae. If we combine the two, we now get document B where

B = A + Ae

Are you asking
1) what is Ae called now that we have B, which incorporates Ae (redundant?)
2) what is Be called: a new errata to B
3) what is Aee called: errata to Ae (errata of a errata)
4) what is Ae2 called: Further corrections to A (same as Be) but applied in the context of A instead of B

I don't know the answer to what you're asking but it would be nice to know when there is a reply, which correction/errata they are referring to.

RE: What is an errata after the items on it have been corrected?

I must admit, I've never heard the word 'corrigenda' before reading this thread a while ago, and then yesterday I was listening to NPR, they were doing a word quiz where the answers were rivers, they would give a word, tell you what letter to remove, then use the remaining letters as an anagram and find the name of the river.

One clue was 'Corrigenda without the C', and the answer was Rio Grande. I immediately thought of this thread.
