MORE ABOUT ANNOTATED
What does annotated mean?
The adjective annotated is used to describe a text or similar thing to which notes or comments have been added to provide explanation or criticism about a particular part of it.
Such notes or comments are called annotations, and to add them is to annotate (the adjective annotated comes from the past tense of this verb). Annotation can also refer to the act of annotating.
Annotations are often added to scholarly articles or to literary works that are being analyzed, and it’s these types of things that are most commonly described as annotated. But annotations can be added to any text. For example, a note that you scribble in the margin of your textbook is an annotation, as is an explanatory comment that you add to a list of tasks at work.
The word annotated is sometimes abbreviated as annot. (which can also mean annotation or annotator).
Example: The annotated edition of the book really helped me to understand the historical context and the meanings of some obscure words.
Where does annotated come from?
The first records of the word annotated as an adjective come from the 1800s. Its base word, the verb annotate, derives from the Latin annotātus, which means “noted down” and comes from the Latin verb annotāre. At the root of the word is the Latin nota, which means “mark” and is also the basis of the English word note.
Annotated texts provide explanation, criticism, analysis, or historical perspective that wasn’t originally there. Annotated editions of books typically aim to answer questions that the reader might have while trying to understand the text. In an annotated bibliography, an annotation is added to each citation to provide a summary or other information.
