Direct Quotations

According to the information in the Encarta encyclopedia, many Americans, besides me, have asthma and that number has increased dramatically in the last 20 years. The encyclopedia states, “ More than 17 million Americans suffer from asthma, with nearly 5 million cases occurring in children under age 18. In the United States, asthma causes 5,500 deaths each year… Among all Americans, the prevalence of asthma increased more than 60 percent between 1982 and 1994” (1).

Paraphrase – Where to put citation

  • If you have multiple facts from the same source in a row, put the citation at the end.

    When it comes to the treatment of asthma, two instruments are commonly. The first is called a peak flow meter. This is a tube about six inches long; its purpose is to measure your ability to push air out of your lungs. When you exhale into it, you can determine if your lungs are working at their capacity. If they are not, you know it is time to take some medication, often with a metered-dose inhaler (Peak Flow Meters).

  • The Science Channel delineates five main Bermuda Triangle theories: human error, crazy weather patterns, magnetic fields, Atlantis, and aliens (“Bermuda Triangle Theories” 1).

  • A scuba diver in the 1970s claims to have found a mirrored pyramid in the area around the Bahamas (“Bermuda Triangle Theories” 3). While the Atlantis theory is fascinating and would be a blast if it were true, I don’t feel it likely.
