Parablepsis, from Gr παράβλεψις, ‘looking askance’, related to the verb for ‘look aside’, ‘overlook’, describes eye-skip in the reading practice of a copyist. As such, parablepsis is not an error in itself, but posits the precipitator in a process that leads to an omission or (less likely) an addition.
