    A "mistype". aka typo, is a typing error whereas a grammatically error is an error in grammar.

    Sometimes a typographical error is also a grammatical error — but not always.

    For example, consider this sentence.

    “I have not got my research paper done yet because I am a prostitute.”

    The correct word should be procrastinator.

    A mistype, also called a 'typo' (short for 'typographical error') is simply the use of the wrong key on a keyboard, e.g. 'from' for 'form', or 'Europen' for 'European'.

    A grammatical error is constructing a phrase or sentence incorrectly. E.g. "I went to school next week."
