This depends on what variant of English you speak. In British English, whether it goes inside or outside depends on whether the quote is a complete sentence or not. (If it is, the quote goes inside. If not, outside.)<br />
In American English, on the other hand, it always goes inside.<br />
Other Englishes may vary again, but hopefully they stick to one of the above rules. Ain't life complicated? :/
Yep. Though less so if you're American; I'm starting to see why they just settled on a rule. :)
In British English, just include all the punctuation in the quote, then add a period after if you haven't already. Hope that helps...
I'm American and I always put the period on the outside of the quotations unless the quote is a complete sentence. It just makes sense for me to do it this way.
From http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/marks/quotation.htm<br />
In the United Kingdom, Canada, and islands under the influence of British education, punctuation around quotation marks is more apt to follow logic. In American style, then, you would write: My favorite poem is Robert Frost's "Design." But in England you would write: My favorite poem is Robert Frost's "Design". The placement of marks other than periods and commas follows the logic that quotation marks should accompany (be right next to) the text being quoted or set apart as a title. Thus, you would write (on either side of the Atlantic):<br />
What do you think of Robert Frost's "Design"? and<br />
I love "Design"; however, my favorite poem was written by Emily Dickinson.
Outside if it's a quote within a larger sentence...
Chicago Manual of Style, Section 6.9: Period and commas in relation to closing quotation marks. Periods and commas precede closing quotation marks, whether double or single.
outside of course.
She said, "Shut the damn door!"
She said, "I want to go home.". =inside, if you are quoting a sentence.<br />
My father always said, "Be careful what you wish for."
okay look I am going to show you..... <br />
"Hi, how are you?" or Hey I need you to pick up the dog "Frenchy" for me please. <br />
I hope that helps you a little
the first one unless extra punctuation is needed such as
He said "Yes!".
if you must but I would hope that you wouldnt leave a sentence like that it is incorrect grammer..... lol
Best quotes wont need grammar check go ahead and post it lol i nvr chk whn i post inside or outside lol whtever is pressed is final
In that case "its Inside " good luck with your book
A period end a sentence, therefore, the quotes are inside the sentence.
in the middle
Inside. The sentence stopped inside. The quotes will be after the period.
I use one of these . .
The period should be inside of the quotations.
The normal rule is to put them inside, but that's just plain stupid - I always put them outside (I'm a rebel like that).
the full stop or period as you Americans call it ends the sentence so should always be the last thing in a sentence.<br />
If quoting a sentence you put one inside the quotes and another outside the quotes when your sentence ends. If quoting a phrase that would not normally have a full stop (period) after it you do not need one.<br />
I asked her if she was happy "very" she answered.<br />
I asked her if she was happy "I am thanks." she answered.<br />
One is a sentence within a sentence hence two full stops one inside the quotes ine outside
Depends on if you're quoting someone else, if so then it's inside and outside - if you are making your own statement, it's outside. "I think.".
