                           A Practical Guide to MLA Style

Indent ¶s   When the MLA style was first conceived more than a half century ago,

  the main purpose was to develop standards for the publication of manuscripts in

  the field of English and other modern, as opposed to ancient, languages (Modern

  Language Assoc. xvi). ―Although designed for those who intend to publish,‖

  Houghton and Houghton point out that, ―numerous colleges and universities

  adhere to these stringent guidelines‖ ( xii). Learning to do MLA style well shows

  you are concerned about doing thorough research and giving proper credit to those
In Text Citations--Ideas
Whenever you get an idea from a source, cite it using the author’s name and page
number in parentheses at the end of the sentence or paragraph describing their
idea. The period goes after the final parenthesis.

Example:

When the MLA style was first conceived more than a half century ago, the main

purpose was to develop standards for the publication of manuscripts in the field of

English and other modern, as opposed to ancient, languages (Modern Language

Assoc. xvi).                                           Modern Language
                                                   Association is a corporate
                                                     author….for corporate
                                                   authors abbreviate words
                                                   with standard abrievations.
In Text Citations—Author in text
If you refer to the author(s) in the text of your paper, cite the source simply with
page number (s) in parentheses next to the author’s name.

Example:

         According to Fox, the internet has played a significant role in the

increase of plagiarism in academia today (27).
In Text Citations—
                      Short Direct Quote
When you directly quote a source you need to add quotation marks around the
words or sentence you copy. You put the parenthetical citation and final period
after the closing quotation mark.

Example:

         ―Although designed for those who intend to publish point out that

numerous colleges and universities adhere to these stringent guidelines‖

(Houghton and Houghton xii).
In Text Citations—Long Direct Quote
When your direct quotation is longer than 4 typed lines of prose or 3 lines of
poetry, put it in an indented paragraph without quotation marks.

Example:

The Owl at Purdue clearly explains MLA long quotations:

    Place quotations longer than four typed lines in a free-standing block of text,

    and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, with the entire

    quote indented one inch from the left margin; maintain double-spacing. Only

    indent the first line of the quotation by a half inch if you are citing multiple

    paragraphs. Your parenthetical citation should come after the closing
                                                    When quoting from a webpage,
                                                   determine the paragraph # quoted and
    punctuation mark. (Kunka et al. par. 8)             use that instead of a page #
