Direct Quotation: Andrew said, “Lets go fly a kite.”
“Who parked their car on my sandwich?” asked Thomas.
Indirect Quotation: Shelby said that she would probably be at the game.
The teacher promised us that she would bring in cupcakes tomorrow for lunch.
Examples: Shelby asked, “What should I bring for lunch tomorrow?”
Thomas said “Let’s go to the park tomorrow afternoon.”
Examples: After the game, Andrew said: “Let’s go out to eat.”
After school, Mia asked: “Do we have a lot of homework tonight?”
Write the quotation as a full sentence ending with a comma, question mark, or exclamation mark inside the quotation mark. Only do this when a concluding expression follows a direct quotation.
Because concluding expressions are not complete sentences, you should not begin them with capital letters.
Examples: “What do you want to do this weekend?” asked Mia.
Examples: “I am going to the beach after school,” said Thomas, “so I have to hurry home.”
Examples: “We are going to the movies,” said Andrew. “We are going to have so much fun.”
Examples: Did you just say, “My cat is throwing up blood”?
What did you mean when you said, “Death is only the beginning”?
Double quotation marks are used to enclose the main quotation.
The rules for using commas and end marks with single quotation marks (‘ ‘) are the same as they are with double quotation marks.
Single quotation marks are used to separate a quote that appears inside of another quotation.
Examples: “Do you know if it was Thomas who said, ‘I am the tyrant of Iceland!’ during the skit?” I asked.

Underlining is only used for written or typed material.
Italic print is used instead of underlining when typed.
