Abstract:

A discussion of Russian terms for describing accuracy, error, correction, and the confusion which is created by using them in the wrong contexts. According to GOST 16263-73, the term for error, oshibka, should now be replaced by the word pogreshnost. The author believes that GOST 16263-73 should be studied carefully before being used as a standard.
