Transcript of "09 24 quotations and titles"

  1. 1. “ Quotation Marks “• One of the principal uses of quotation marks is to indicate what someone said (direct speech). The reporter asked, “What happened at your farmlast night?” Mr. Johnson said, “A UFO came down from the skyand landed in my corn field.”
  2. 2. “ Quotation Marks “• Capitalize the first letter of the quotation when it is a complete sentence, and place end punctuation inside the quotation marks if the sentence ends at the end of the quotation.The reporter asked, “What happened at your farm last night?” Mr. Johnson said, “A UFO came down from the sky and landed in my corn field.”
  3. 3. “ Quotation Marks “• Place a comma before the first set of quotation marks.The reporter asked, “What happened at your farm last night?” Mr. Johnson said, “A UFO came down from the sky and landed in my corn field.”
  4. 4. “ Quotation Marks “• You don’t have to place quotations only at the beginning of a sentence. They can be anywhere within the sentence. “What was your first reaction?” asked the reporter. (at the beginning) “I thought it was awfully strange,” replied Mr.Johnson. “Maybe some big-shot Hollywood producers arefilming a movie here.” (broken up within the sentence)
  5. 5. “ Quotation Marks “• If the quotation ends with a question mark, always leave it before the last set of quotation marks. “What was your first reaction?” asked the reporter.• If the quotation should end with a period but is in the middle of a sentence, replace it with a comma. “I thought it was awfully strange,” replied Mr.Johnson. “Maybe some big-shot Hollywood producers arefilming a movie here.”
  6. 6. “ Quotation Marks “ The reporter asked, “What happened at your farm lastnight?” Mr. Johnson said, “A UFO came down from the sky andlanded in my corn field.” “What was your first reaction?” asked the reporter. “I thought it was awfully strange,” said Mr. Johnson.“Maybe some big-shot Hollywood producers are filming a moviehere.”You don’t have to always use the same words: saidand asked.
