1. a correction or improvement in a text
2. the act or process of emending, i.e. to make corrections or improvements in (a text) by critical editing

Though it was his duty
He found emendation tedious
And borderline sacrilegious

An assault on an author’s rights

while emendation is an attack on an author, i suggest that annotation, if carried out in the right spirit, is a sincere compliment
