mistake made in the typing process (such as a spelling mistake) of printed material
A typographical error or typo is a word that has been spelt wrong by accident. There are a few ways to make a typo:
- Hitting the wrong key while typing. Example: "Tom amd Jane are friends."
- Pressing the keys in the wrong order. Example: "Tom nad Jane are friends."
- Forgetting to press a key. Example "Tom nd Jane are friends."
- Holding a key too long, causing a letting to be typed twice. Example "Tom andd Jane are friends."
