    curtaild or potted?

    I would like to know what is the difference between a curtaild version and a potted version as the meaning appears to be practically the same for both expressions.

    Thank you very much

    A potted vesion is just a brief vesion, while curtailed suggests to me that it has been cut short. A potted one will skip details, but is not incomplete.
