## Definition

Let $c$ be a transmitted codeword of a message sent over a transmission line $T$.

Let $c'$ be the corresponding word received across $T$.

Each term of $c'$ may or may not match the corresponding term of $c$.

Each term of $c'$ which does *not* match the corresponding term of $c$ is referred to as an instance of a **transmission error**.
