sicsīc, sic erat scriptum[1])是一个从拉丁语衍生出的词汇,它在拉丁语中原意为“所以、这样、就像那样”。在英语中,sic 用于表示引用的句子中不正确或不常用的拼写、短语或标点用法,为引述者在引用时后加上的片语,一般翻译成中文为“原文如此[2]。通常在书写时用方括号包含,且用斜体,成为“ [sic] ”的形式。该词的拉丁语原读音类似于英文的 seek(IPA /'sik/),中间为长元音(sīc);不过在英语中,这个词一般读作 /'sɪk/,类似英文 sick 一词。

例子[编辑]

  • 美国宪法:[3]

The House of Representatives shall chuse [sic] their Speaker ...

(这里的 "chuse" 同 "choose",不过为旧时用法,现已很少使用。)

  • 泰晤士报:[4]

Warehouse has been around for 30 years and has 263 stores, suggesting a large fan base. The chain sums up its appeal thus: "styley [sic], confident, sexy, glamorous, edgy, clean and individual, with it's [sic] finger on the fashion pulse."

(这里的 "styley" 和 "it's" 为错误用词,应为 "stylish" 和 "its"。)
