Underlining and Quotation Marks
Transcript of Underlining and Quotation Marks
"Hi Bob!" he replied. Quotation Marks When the quote consists of multiple sentences, put quotation marks at the beginning and end of the whole quote. example:"Do you want to come to the mall with us? If not let us know before 6:00 P.M. We are planning to watch the movie then," she said. Use single quotation marks to enclose a quotation inside a quotation. example: "My friend always says 'What is this' during a test." Use quotation marks to enclose titles of short works: stories, poems, articles, songs, episodes on television, chapters and other parts of books. Titles of works When quoted within text, titles of long, full-length works should be underlined. Full-length works are things like novels, plays, poems, and text books. *Shorter works (poems, articles, short stories, chapter titles) should also be italicized, but if that’s not possible, they should be put in quotation marks. If the punctuation is part of the title, include it in the underlining or quotation marks. If it’s not part of the title, make sure it’s outside the underlining or quotation marks. Underline the specific name of individual air, sea, space, and land craft. Examples: Challenger (space)
Greased Lightning (type of Chevy, land) Underline foreign words or abbreviations unless they are regularly used in English. example:
Incorrect: That was a pro bono legal brief.
Correct: That was a pro bono legal brief.
(Legal term from Latin, used by lawyers but otherwise not common.) Underlining Underline words which you want to emphasize. example: You did what? Underline numbers, symbols, letters, and words which name themselves (or which are used as the figure or word). examples: Incorrect: "Give me a C!" the cheerleader shouted. (The letter is used as a letter, it names itself.)
Correct: "Give me a C!" the cheerleader shouted.
Incorrect: His 2's look like 7's.
(The numbers are being referred to as figures; they are not numbering anything.)
Correct: His 2's look like 7's. Underlining Titles with No Punctuation Do not underline, or place in quotation marks the name of the Bible, its books, divisions, or version, or other religious Scriptures and their divisions or versions. Do not underline, italicize, or place in quotation marks the title of any government document including charters, treaties, acts, statutes, or reports. To clear things up... Still confused about which topics to underline, when you think you should have italicized it instead? Italics and underlines can be used interchangeably, but not at the same time. When typing, we use italics and underlines to identify titles of larger works, books, poems, newspapers, etc. Italics are used when typing, while underlines are used when writing. Quotation marks are a type of punctuation that are either used around direct quotations or used around titles of short works. When using quotations, it is important to remember that punctuation generally goes inside of quotation marks and if there is a quote within a quote, we use single quote marks. Any Questions?
