Transcript of "Quotations"

Quoting and Paraphrasing Short Quotes: According to some, "this is a quote" (Miller 22). I am using quotation marks because "this is a quote" (Miller 22). You can use a colon too: "this is a quote" (Miller 22). Long Quotes: A quote of three lines or longer is a "block quote" (Miller 24). According to this source, there is much to be said about the Star Wars series:

This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote.This is a quote (Miller 29). Paraphrasing In order to successfully paraphrase,
you must do the following:
use original wording
use original structure
retain the initial meaning
retain a semblance of the original length Is this a good paraphrase...? "A quote should be used to support your arguments; do not let it stand alone" (Miller 22).

A properly used quotation bolsters the points in your paper; you should not let a quote work on its own. "A quote should be used to support your arguments; do not let it stand alone" (Miller 22).

Quotations should reinforce a point you've made, and they should not be allowed to make an argument by themselves. If you need to rephrase something in a quote, "[you may] use brackets . . .to distinguish the changes you've made, or an ellipsis to denote excluded text" (Miller 26). A note about citations Your citation should contain
the first word of the citation
in your works cited page. This
is typically a last name (Miller 23).
It may also be the first word of
the article if there is no author ("Citations" 42). The number is the page number; if there are no pages, only
include the last name or title word ("Quotes"). Furthermore, there is a rule for quoting from
the same source multiple times
in a row (Miller 9). If it comes from the
same source, only list the page number
the second time (10).
