Weaving a Citation into the Text


Weaving a citation into the text

In-Text Citation RuleIn MLA style, referring to the works of others in your text is done by using what is known as parenthetical citation. This method involves placing relevant source information in parentheses after a quote or a paraphrase.


Weaving a citation into the text

General GuidelinesThe source information required in a parenthetical citation depends (1.) upon the source medium (e.g. Print, Web, DVD) and (2.) upon the source’s entry on the Works Cited (bibliography) page. Any source information provided in-text must correspond to the source information on the Works Cited page. More specifically, whatever signal word or phrase provide to the reader in the text, must be the first thing that appears on the left-hand margin of the corresponding entry in the Works Cited List

The 1950’s saw the birth of the majority of Americans who became known as the Baby Boom generation. They were so-named because of the enormous number of children born in the years following World War II. During the war, almost every healthy male over the age of eighteen enlisted or was drafted and participated in the war until mid 1945. When those men returned home, they got married and started raising families in large numbers. According to author Joshua Zeitz, in an article from American Heritage magazine, October 2005, the Baby Boom generation really started during the war,“beginning in 1942 with so-called furlough babies, taking off in May 1946 — nine months after V-J Day — and peaking around 1947 or 1948, when an American child was born every eight seconds”(Zeitz 32). Although frantic birth rates slowed a little, throughout the 1950’s, families of returning war veterans grew and they created the suburban landscape that became so familiar in family-oriented television shows of that era.
