  2. 2. 10­28­13 77th prealgebra.notebook October 28, 2013 Chapter 11, Lesson 4- Punctuating Quotations Direct Quotations: • Use quotations at the beginning and end of a direct quotation Ex: "I can't wait to finish my homework!" exclaimed Evan. • Use commas to set off explanatory words used with direct quotations Ex: Luke agreed, "Me too!" "I dislike homework," argued Julia, "because it takes away from my personal life." "I only like reading," Zach said. • If the quotation is a question or an exclamation, place the end mark inside the closing quotations marks. Ex: "Who doesn't like homework?" asked Mrs. Slavens • If quoted words are part of a question or exclamation, place the end mark outside the closing quotation marks. Ex: Did Evan really say "I can't wait to finish my homework"? Evan did say "I can't wait to finish my homework." 2
  3. 3. 10­28­13 77th prealgebra.notebook October 28, 2013 Indirect Quotations: • Do not use quotation marks to set off an indirect quotation. Ex: Ryan said that he wants more homework. Divided Quotations: • use quotation marks to enclose both parts of a divided quotation • Do not capitalize the first word of the second part of a divided quotation unless it begins a new sentence. Ex: "Homework," Mrs. Slavens said, "is helpful for me to see how much you have learned." "Don't tests do that too?" Blake asked. "We would rather take tests everyday instead of having homework." Quotation Marks in Dialogue: • In dialogue, a new paragraph and a new set of quotation marks signal a change in speakers. Ex: Payton said, "Language Arts is my favorite class." "I agree," stated Jason. "Not me. I like History the best," said Anna. 3
