Used when quoting someone directly (usually in newspapers) and placed after the person being quoted makes a spelling error. The journalist/writer inserts (sic) to inform the reader that they aware of the spelling error but left it that way as to keep the quote verbatim

This is usually used for written quotes ie. letters
the girl wrote a letter to her mother:
"Dear Mum, I want to no (sic) how you have been"
