Retraction: n. to reverse direction and/ or trying to exclude and/or take back a communication once it has been communicated and frequently because it is untrue and/or inaccurate
There are retractable knives which can be swiveled back into their sheathes or push button switch blade knives which retract or pop back into the sheath.
More common use of retraction is when someone wants to retract or take back a statement or a promise because it is wrong or untrue or inaccurate or it is something that someone didn’t really want to say after analyzing the consequences of the communication.
Most communication’s retractions are accepted, especially if they are followed by a sincere apology, but sometimes the mistake is so minute that it doesn’t hurt anyone, offend anyone, or greatly mislead anyone and a retraction is not made.
