 (ĭ-rä′təm, ĭ-rā′-)
n. pl. er·ra·ta (-tə)
An error in printing or writing, especially such an error noted in a list of corrections and bound into a book.

[Latin errātum, from neuter past participle of errāre, to stray; see ers- in Indo-European roots.]


(Printing, Lithography & Bookbinding) the plural of erratum


(ɪˈrɑ tə, ɪˈreɪ-, ɪˈræt ə)

n., pl. -tas for 2.
1. pl. of erratum.
2. a list of errors and their corrections inserted, usu. on a separate page or slip of paper, in a book or other publication; corrigenda.
usage: errata is orig. the plural of erratum, a borrowing from Latin. By the mid-17th century, errata had come to be used as a singular noun meaning “a list of errors or corrections for a book.” Despite objections by some, this use is standard in English: The errata begins on page 237. When errata clearly means “errors,” it takes plural verbs and pronouns.
