Completely useless nitpick but wouldn’t glaciers cutting fall under the category of erosion when you say glaciers cut and water erodes?

it's a meaningful distinction. Think of it like a potato peeled by a peeler or by a knife. Both are peeled(eroded), but when observing the result you wouldn't miss that the process was different.

Glaciers erode by chunks, water by bits? But by being more specific and less poetic you start to introduce errors.
