Transcript of Embedding Quotes
Strengthens your argument
Allows you to include information like: who said the quote, who the quote is directed to, and what the quote is talking about. Signal phrases are used to introduce quotes Example Signal Phrases:
According to ___ ...
As ____ explains...
____ claims that, ... Use [brackets] to indicate changes you've made to quotes.
Comprehension Ellipses. . .
are used to indicate that you have left out a part of the quote Use ellipses when you've left out words from the middle of a quote not the beginning or the end. Sandwiching Quotes
-First sentence introduces the quote
-Second sentences contains the quote
-Third sentence analyzes the significance of the quote Punctuating Quotes Commas are not necessary when the quoted word or phrase fits into the sentence without a pause or break. Example: Lennie likes to eat his beans "with ketchup" (Steinbeck 8). You almost ALWAYS need a comma after a form of "to say." Example: My father always said, "Be careful what you wish for" (Torres). In-text citations go at the end of a quoted sentence and include either the author's last name or the title of the article. Ending punctuation goes after the in-text citation.
Example: Gatsby was known for his "pink rag of a suit" (Fitzgerald 154).
