Other forms: amended; amends; amending
When you amend something, you correct or improve it. If you confused your audience when you gave your speech, don't be afraid to amend what you said.
Amend can also describe adding amendments to an official document, such as a constitution or law. If politicians in your state want to address the growing number of home foreclosures, they might amend the state constitution to include restrictions intended to reduce foreclosures. Amend comes from the Latin word emendare, meaning "to correct, free from fault."
