    Question English

    There is a symbol....i believe... it is [csi] or [cis]. It is used when you are quoting someone who has a sentence with in correct grammar or tense.]
    For example, I believe Mike said "I choose[csi] to go yesterday."

    Could someone tell me what it means or a site that i could refer to, so i can get information on it...P.S.I am a high school senior

    Re: English

    [sic] It comes from the Latin 'sicut', meaning 'just as', to show that you haven't changed the original.
