The omission of one word can mildly confuse or significantly alter the meaning of a document, record, or statement.

We discovered this in the original version of today’s actual “tip,” where the word “States” was left out in the phrase “United States census.”

Make certain you are not leaving out words that matter and consider that a confusing document might be confusing because a word was left out of it.
