Transcript

  • 1. Dialog Punctuation
    (With me, Mrs. Cannon)
  • 2. Every story has dialog. Here are a few tips to help you punctuate it properly.
  • 3. Tip 1: Always start a new paragraph and indent when someone starts speaking. Here is an example.
  • 4. Mrs. Cannon was writing on the board as everyone arrived. Then she turned around.
    “Hi, everyone!”
  • 5. Tip 2: Always use quotation marks. For example:
    “The little red squiggles on either side of this text are called quotation marks.”
  • 6. Tip 3: Never use a period before a “he said.”
    (Please ignore the banned word.  )
    Only commas, exclamation points, and question marks are allowed.
  • 7.
    • “Hi,” he whispered.
    • 8. “Hi!” he exclaimed.
    • 9. “Hi?” he repeated.
    But never:
    “Hi.” he whispered.
  • 10. What if you want to put a
    “he said” in the middle of a sentence?
  • 11. Tip 4: Use commas to put a “he said” in mid-sentence.
    For example:
    “Inside the cave,” he explained, “you will find the answers you seek.”
  • 12. Ta da! That’s all you need to get started!
    Have questions? Just let me know.
