Under the Lens: Errant, Aberrant and Inerrant

Both errant and aberrant mean deviating or straying from the normal course. Errant, more specifically, can just mean wandering or straying. Errant and aberrant come from the same root. If we add the negative prefix in- to that root, we get inerrant which means free from errors. Inerrant should have meant not wandering etymologically but language is not mathematics.
