Emending is needed in the case of very old books which have not been preserved properly, and also in writings before they are printed. For then only correct texts.

  • The author emended the spellings of the characters in his novel to avoid any controversy involving those people living or dead.
  • These days there is no need to spend so much time emending the grammatical and spelling errors in books because computer software has come out with in-built spelling and Grammar check facilities.
