    [sic] doesn’t stand for anything. It’s something you write when you want to quote someone but that person used incorrect spelling or grammar. You write that to indicate that the incorrect grammar/spelling is their mistake, not yours.

    P.S. stands for “Postscript”

    Sic is used when you are quoting something with a mistake in the original statement. You use it to demonstrate that the mistake was in the original and is not our mistake. It stands for sic erat scriptum, which means thus was it written.

    P.s. Stands for Post Scriptum.

    old man, That’s when it’s used after a person’s name.

    When used after a place name it’s ???? ???? ?????.

    What if is says ??”? [sic]?

    You raise a good point. It should say ??”? [sic], because ???? refers to ???? being masculine, but ???? implies she is feminine. So correctly it should be either ???? ???? ????? or ???? ???? ?????. I have the same issue with the popular abbreviation used after a name ??”?, ????? ??? ?????. It should be ??”?.

    and don’t start with me on taleisim, shabbosim etc.

    the g’mara often uses the word ???? as masculine.

    For example, gittin 12b- ???? ??? ???? ????? ???? ??? ??? ??????

    [sic] is short for “sic erat scriptum”, “thus was it written” in Latin.
