Sorry I Got It Wrong

A footnote in W. C. Watt's "Curves as Angles", in Writing Systems and Cognition: Perspectives from Psychology, Physiology, Linguistics, and Semiotics (edited by W. C. Watt), Kluwer, 1994, p. 239:
The rules presented in these pages form a fragment of a graphonomic ('iconic') grammar that substantially differs from the one I have urged elsewhere (e.g. in Watt 1988b), notably in its use of the cycle and in its merger of phanemic and kinemic features. Sorry I didn't get it right the first time.
When did YOU last see a scholar saying something like this?
