Cancellation. We use the word canceled as the encompassing term for text that has in some way been designated for removal. It comprehends methods such as blotting, lining through, annotating, erasing, and cutting— any of which can be stipulated should the editor deem more elaborate description appropriate (as, for instance, for a procedure that is anomalous within a given manuscript).
