Hi all!
What das "erm" mean? I haven't found this word in any dictionary...

Hello zaby,

'erm' is also spelt 'um', which you can find in the Cambridge Dictionary (follow the link). It's not really a word but rather the sound many people make when they are deciding what to say.

Yes, it probably should. I'm going to check with our proofreader to be sure and then will fix that. Thanks for pointing this out to us!
