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.
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.".
