Transcript of Qtation Marks


4-
When writing, you should
start a new paragraph
every time the writer changes.
7-
Academic writing (
school essays, short answers on tests
) does not tolerate slang. If it cannot be avoided, place the word/phrase
within quotation marks
.
8-
Use quotation marks with nicknames when these
appear together
with the full name.
9-
When referring to short stories, essays, poems, magazine or journal articles, book chapters, brochures, pamphlets, songs and episodes from television
DO NOT PUT...
"Quotation Marks"
Why it's important to use
"
quotation marks
"
when you're writing
1-
You can quote something you've read in a book, magazine, or website
Finally Katniss said,
"
I hunt. He bakes. Haymitch drinks.
"

You can even quote something you've watched on tv, in a movie, or something your friend said at lunch.
Did you hear that Alex asked Allison,
"
Are you going to the football game on Friday night?
"
Allison told Alex,
"
Not going with you!
"

OR
2- *
If quotes are
more than 4 lines
long, they are
ALWAYS
separated into their own block of text.
In S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders, Ponyboy says,
“Sixteen years on the streets and you can learn a lot. But all the wrong things, not the things you want to learn. Sixteen years on the streets and you see a lot. But all the wrong sights, not the things you want to see.”
This is Ponyboy's realization that the road he is going down is pulling him in two different directions and he is at the age where he needs to decide which path to take.

You can use quotation marks

Bobbi told me,

Dani said,

Bobbi said,

Dani asked,

Are you going to the party?

Shelly asked.


No way I’m dealing with that mess.

Charlene shifted her chair away from the table.

I’m so tired of that scene.

5-
When referring to words used as words
It is a common mistake among students of English to confuse
"
expect
"
and
"
except

when reading or writing.
6-
Using
self-coined terms/unfamiliar words
your readers are unlikely to understand, draw their attention to these by using quotation marks
and providing definitions.
On our last writing assignment about creating instructions for a new game, we received one grade for writing proficiency and one for
"
idiot proofing ,
"
that is,
how clear and self-explanatory the instructions would be to even the most obtuse reader
.
The self coined term is
"IDIOT PROOFING"
whch is
followed up by the definition
of IDIOT PROOFING
In
The Outsiders
, Dally had a very
"YOLO"
view on life and he eventually paid the ultimate price for this.
Lou
"
the Lizard
"
Maloney
Nicknames on their own
do not warrant quotation marks.
Weezy
Cher
Drake
Jay-Z
Ke$ha
Skrillex
If the nickname is
well known
, you
do not need
to give it with the
full name
.
We read Rober Frost's poem,
"
Nothing Gold Can Stay,
"
before we dove into
The Outsiders
.
Fetty Wap's song,
"
679
"
was released in early 2015.
Poem

I couldn't sleep after watching
"
First Time Again,
"
The Walking Dead episode from last Sunday.
