Yes! This is by far the best post I've come across with the three pigs (imagine a French accent here) as a topic. To offer "stir" as meaning of pique is helpful, for the closest to the irritation which the onomatopoea (more in French than English) brings forth. "Ça pique!" may be uttered after misplacing key's, suffering a bite of an ant, or better yet, someone else by a fly (as in the saying "Quelle mouche t'a picqué?") in that latte case the expression means what's bugging you?
As for a copy editor imaginative and inquisitive while correcting, a wholehearted Yes! to that as well.

Invigilating FCE & CAE recently, I saw precious little evidence of planning/brainstorming prior to leaping into writing tasks (and subsequently messy arrows & crossings out) but also candidates writing up to the buzzer and not giving themselves any time to check their own work. Absolutely NOT a waste of time - those extra 10 words won't make a difference; the re-read will rescue points.

The Difference between Proofreading and Copy Editing, and between Copy editing and Content Editing

The Difference between Proofreading and Copy Editing, and between Copy editing and Content Editing | Litteris | Scoop.it

I am frequently asked what the difference is between proofreading and copy editing. Then there is content editing. What is the difference between copy editing and content editing? Contrary to what most authors think, there are distinct differences among the three.

"Generalization is the hallmark of all higher-level brain functions." That's right--the reason I missed those typos was because I was using my higher-level brain functions. Yep. That's it. :)

Three tricks to sharpen your proofreading eye

Three tricks to sharpen your proofreading eye | Litteris | Scoop.it

Brain science says our minds are sense-making machines. Our minds will interpret what's in front of us as what we expect to see, mentally filling in omitted words, for example, or seeing expected end punctuation that isn't actually there.

So how does one trick the mind to stop making sense (and assumptions)? Here are a few tricks I use at work to ensure I catch everything.

Good ideas to take a fresh approach to proofing.  I agree with reading through several times (for me, usually three), each time looking for different types of errors.
