  • from digital-text mailing list:

    Klaus Graf recently used a new but potentially very useful word, probably by mistake, "proffread". I am going to use this word to mean "reading by academics". Perhaps I should issue a version of each of my books, full of mistakes, specially for proffreaders, to keep them happy.
