    One of the meanings is the omitting (= leaving out or dropping) of something. I have put into your post some letters and punctuation that you omitted - and struck out one letter that you should have omitted.

    Re: omission

    If you can include something, you can omit it. Here are some examples: s in 'omission'; A and d in 'And'; and a in 'what'. You made up in part for these omissions by giving us an extra o in 'to'.

    Or, more simply.
