Turkish pronunciation sîk
Etymology () From Latin sīc (“thus, so”). Latin word meaning "thus," "so," "as such," or "in such a manner." It is used when writing quoted material to indicate that an incorrect or unusual spelling, phrase, punctuation or meaning in the quote has been reproduced verbatim from the original and is not a transcription error (i.e. it appeared thus in the original). It is normally placed within the quoted material, in square brackets and often italicized—. Alternatively it can appear after the quote in parentheses (round brackets)—(sic). The particular entry is available in the online preview, via search. Where the quoted material is a known error, and the correct word or phrase is known, it may be included, preceded by recte, Latin for "rightly"; this is common in palaeography.
