As anyone who has ever done copy editing will tell you, it is possible to edit anywhere on a continuum from light to heavy. Light editing simply provides the minimum needed for the printer to use in setting type—correcting typos, marking out hyphens at the end of lines, and the like. Heavy editing involves all of that plus reconstructing faulty sentences—and sometimes whole paragraphs—so that the thoughts trapped therein are freed from the murk of jargon, cliché, and stilted language. Heavy editing ventures away from the rule-bound precincts of punctuation and spelling into the wilds of grammar, syntax, and idiom.
