    поправка vs. поправление

    What is the difference between the two? Supposedly they both mean correction, and come from the word поправить, and I'm sure that there is a difference in usage, maybe поправка is the diminutive, meaning a small correction, and поправление would just be any correction? I ask because I notice these two forms, or whatever they are called, are used with a lot of other verbs as well, and it'd help me alot to be able to understand the general signficance. Thanks.

    By the way...what would you call them? forms? something else? Russian or English description would be helpful...

    I think:

    поправление - the action of correcting
    поправка - a correction

    Am I right?

    Да, ты прав, только слово "поправление" практически не используется.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    What's the difference between that and исправление?
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    Слово "исправление" широко используется, а "поправление" - нет. Смысл одинаковый.
