direct quotations
Direct Quotations
  • Used to quote exactly what someone says. In this case, the quotations marks go around the word or phrase.
  • Examples:
  • •Sarah smiled and said, "Yes."
  • •I looked up from my desk and said, "No, you can't have a cookie."
indirect quotations
Indirect Quotations
  • Indirect quotations are when you reference what someone said, but you’re not quoting them exactly. In this situation, no quotation marks are needed.
  • Examples:
  • •He wondered whether Sarah would say yes.
  • •I looked up from my desk and told him no, he couldn't have a cookie.
where do i put the punctuation marks
Where do I put the punctuation marks?
  • Commas and periods ALWAYS go before the quotation marks.

Squiggly said, “I hate packing for a vacation.”

“I hate packing for a vacation,” said the yellow snail.

Where do I put the punctuation marks?
  • Other punctuation marks, such as exclamation points and question marks, are placed according the context of the quotation
    • In this sentence, the whole thing is a question, so the question mark goes after the closing quotation mark:
    • Did she ask you whether you enjoyed U2’s song “Pride”?
    • However, in this sentence only the part in quotation marks is a question, so the question mark goes inside the closing quotation mark:
    • I love Peter, Paul and Mary’s song “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”

Where do the punctuation marks go?
  • With semicolons, colons, asterisks, and dashes, we get back to a simple rule. They always go outside the closing quotation mark.
  • I loved the song “Where have all the flowers gone?”; it’s insightful and moving.
  • “Where have all the flowers gone?”: A Moving and Insightful Song.
  • One of Peter, Paul and Mary’s greatest hits is “Where have all the flowers gone?”*
  • I love “Where have all the flowers gone?”--it’s insightful and moving.
