Fully [sic] …

MFU0973Okay, we all know what [sic] means when it is placed near a misspelt word in a quote. But do you know what sic really means in Latin?
It’s ‘sic erat scriptum’, which when translated means ‘thus it was written’. So the quote has been transcribed exactly as found in the original source complete with erroneous spelling or non-standard presentation. In other words, transcribed warts and all.
