Do you panic at the thought of finalizing a text that you have worked on, for fear you may have missed an error? Maybe you have already had the experience of catching one or two after a text has been printed or put online.
Proof correction involves all the minutiae that may have escaped the most careful scrutiny of the editors or which slipped by unnoticed at the point of layout. With the help of many exercises, you will learn to flush out pesky typos and other errors and effectively communicate the changes that are needed. But you will also learn how to structure your interventions and point out the most important. You will save precious minutes or hours and will never again see a text the same way.
