This terra is to be distinguished from its synonyms “change” and “amend.” To change may import the substitution of an entirely different tiling, while to alter is to operate upon a subject-matter which continues objectively the same while modified in some particular. If a check is raised, in respect to its amount, it is altered; if a new check is put in its place, it is changed. To “amend” implies that the modification made in the subject improves it, which is not necessarily the case with an alteration. An amendment always involves an alteration, but an alteration does not always amend. thelawdictionary.org
