Haplography

Haplography is a copyist error in which the copyist writes once what should have been written twice. An example of this would be writting 'rabit' when 'rabbit' should have been copied. In the case of the biblical manuscripts, this error in copying would create a textual variant which could be responsible for an apparent contradiction or slight discrepency in the text, which did not appear in the autograph.
