Tips: Emend comes from the Latin word emendare, "to take out a fault." It's very similar to the word amend, which means "to change," but it's different in that it refers specifically to changing something in order to improve it. Think of mending a garment; when you mend a garment, you fix it. In the same way, when you emend something, usually text, you fix it. An emendation is an improvement made to a text.
