Legal Dictionary


The word “sic” is derived from Latin and means “thus” or “so.” It is commonly used in written text, enclosed in brackets, to indicate that a quoted material is reproduced exactly as it appeared in the source, including any errors, unconventional spellings, or grammar. This usage is usually employed by writers and editors to clarify that any mistakes or unusual aspects of the quoted text are not their own errors but were present in the original source.
