What does sic mean?
sic is a Latin word meaning “thus,” “so,” “as such,”. It is a bracketed expression used to indicate that an unusual spelling, phrase, or any other preceding quoted material is intended to be read or printed exactly as shown (rather than being an error) and should not be corrected. sic is generally placed inside square brackets [ ] , or in parentheses ( ) .
