How To Display Titles Properly…

And look good while doing it!

HSA/Grammar Skills


To begin with

To Begin with…

  • When dealing with titles, you have three options:

    • Underline

    • Italics

    • “Quotation Marks”

  • BUT…

    • Underline and Italics do the same exact job!!!

      • (so you really only have two options )


Why do we do this anyway

Why do we do this, anyway?!

  • To separate the words of a title from the rest of the words in a sentence or paragraph.

    • Remember: people who read your writing, whatever it may address, may not know or be familiar with exactly what you’re talking about

    • So…you cannot assume that your reader will know what the title you’re discussing actually is!!

    • Consider the case of one of my favorite novels of all time…

  • To respect the effort that authors put into creating a title.

    • Besides, a title is a piece of writing’s first impression!

    Try this question

    Try this question…

    The following sentence contains two titles. Choose the revision that correctly portrays them.

    Walter Dean Myers’s novel, “Monster,” contains material that is loosely related to a poem by Frank Marshall Davis entitled The Slave.

    • Monster; The Slave

    • “Monster;” “The Slave”

    • Monster; “The Slave”

    • The sentence is correct as it is.


    And the correct answer is

    And the correct answer is…

    • C — Monster; “The Slave”

      • Monster is a novel (a book), and therefore must be underlined (or italicized)

      • “The Slave” is a poem, and therefore must be in “quotation marks”
