Template {{sic}} placed immediately after a circumstantially correct but unusual spelling or grammatically iffy statement, will add a small but superior note at that point in the text that links to this page.


«
« The Latin adverb sic ("thus"; in full: sic erat scriptum, "thus was it written") added immediately after a quoted word or phrase (or a longer piece of text), indicates that the quotation has been transcribed exactly as found in the original source, complete with any erroneous or archaic spelling or other nonstandard presentation. » – Wikipedia (source)

Sic, in other words, indicates that the word is a direct retranscription and not the result of a spelling mistake.


Not to be confused with sigh.
