    SubjectRE: PROBLEM: english language
    Date


    English was my absolute worst subject, but does not sic mean something like
    "that's what the author REALLY wanted to say" or "said in context?" In
    other words, the sic is probably there because whoever wrote "Play operation
    oborted" really wanted it to say "oborted." Did I just prove my English is
    real bad or what?

    From dictionary.com:

    sic \Sic\, adv. [L.] Thus.

    Note: This word is sometimes inserted in a quotation [sic], to call
    attention to the fact that
    some remarkable or inaccurate expression, misspelling, or the like,
    is literally reproduced.
    Source: Webster's
    Revised Unabridged Dictionary





    sic adv : intentionally so written (used after a printed word or
    phrase) v : urge a dog to
    attack someone [syn: set]
    -----------------------
    Maybe it should be "Play operation oborted [sic]" instead of "Play operation
    oborted (sic)"? [sic]
