QUOTATION MARKS – Lesson C
Punctuation Marks with Quotation Marks
Always place a comma or period before beginning or ending quotation marks.
“Harry,” he requested, “please take this to your mother.”
Quotation Marks in Dialogue
Begin a new paragraph with every change of speaker.
“Hello, Tiffany,” Peter stammered.
“Hi Peter. How are you?”
“Fine, I think. What have you been doing lately?”
Quotation Marks in Continuing Paragraphs
For quotations longer than a single paragraph, put quotation marks at the beginning of each paragraph but only at the end of the final quoted word.
Note that the first paragraph has no closing quotation marks. Quotation marks do open the next paragraph to show that the quotation continues.
Punctuate the following sentences. (I have left out all punctuation and capitalizations to add to the challenge.)
mary he requested please take this to mr green
george claimed I have twenty points bill said i have only twelve
