Hello,

here's what Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English says:

1. sic Latin used after a word that you have copied in order to show that you know it was not spelled or used correctly: We had seen several signs that said "Orange's (sic) for sale."

2. sic AmE informal to tell a dog to attack someone: He sicced his dog on me.

Sic'em! spoken used to tell a dog to attack someone.

rgds,

cairn
Oh, and it should be: What does 'sic' mean?

Thank you very much! I felt it was enough for me to learn it from you guys. By the way, thank you for corrected my subject and I changed it already, Cairn.
You're most welcome!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
QUOTE: thank you for corrected my subject

CORRECTION: thank you for correcting my subject.
sick, man, so easy !!!!
Sic is latin for thus, and it's used in a quote when the author wants you to know that they are aware of the error, but that is the way they found the quote.
