—“Mistake(mistaken) vs. Error (err). Whats your distinction?”—Richard Hall
ERROR: Errors in the construction of arguments that lead to erroneous conclusions (logic, operations)
MISTAKE: Mistakes in articulation that do not lead to erroneous conclusions (explanation, example)
I mean, I produce a lot of content, almost every day. So I make mistakes all the time. I make typos all the time, poor word choice, vocabulary mistakes, phrasing, or sentence structure, misquote, mis-remember, all sorts of things, and I tend to write in language that eliminates ‘optional’ words, and omg the list is endless. Those are mistakes.
Errors would be the production of an argument that produced an irreciprocal or false conclusion.
