“Urs,” not “airs”

By Debra Dobbins

There's just time today for a quick definition of errata.  It is a "list of errors, with their corrections, on a separate page of a published work," according to Webster's. 

By the way, when a person makes errors, he or she errs. The first pronunciation of that word is "urs," and not "airs."
