    Smile mrs

    First time I enter a forum and I'm doing it to find out if a native English speaker can confirm the following:

    appendix = addendum (as far as documentation is concerned)

    thanks in advance,

    fab

    I found the following explanation which might help you:

    Re: addendum vs. appendix

    In my experience, an appendix contains related material that supplements the body of the book. For instance, it may contain an important historical document that the author refers to, or a geographical description that is useful to understanding certain events the author discusses. This is related material that doesn't fit into the main text.

    An addendum, on the other hand, contains information that the author would have included in the text if if had been available to her when she was writing. For instance, it might be a discussion of a study that came out after the book was written, but before it was published.
