A Question of Punctuation

Postby OldManRivers » Fri Feb 05, 2010 8:59 pm

A Question of Punctuation

How do you punctuate a question or exclamation in a quotation that is followed by further sentence.

example... "Will you be going to town ( )" John asked.

I should know this but I have somehow gone blank.
May God's gentle grace be with you.

"Will you be going to town?" John asked.

Pup is correct.

We'll cover quotation marks in depth... quotes within quotes... quotes within questions... questions within quotes.

It's not as complicated as you think, once you identify WHO said WHAT.
