EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Latin stet (let it stand).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

stet (plural stets)

  1. A symbol used by proofreaders and typesetters to indicate that a word or phrase that was crossed out should still remain.
    • 2005, Douglas Rushkoff, "Commodified vs. Commoditized", 2005-09-04:[1]
      And my copyeditors at HarperCollins want me to use the word “commodified” exclusively, since it’s the only one in Websters. But I see the words as very different, and have issued a big STET on that one.

Usage notesEdit

Usually used by writing and circling the word stet above or beside the unwanted edit and underscoring the selection with dashes or dots. Alternatively, a circled checkmark may be used in the margin.

VerbEdit

stet (third-person singular simple present stets, present participle stetting, simple past and past participle stetted)

  1. (transitive) To let (edited material) stand, or remain as it was.
