Quotation Marks

Quotation marks are used to punctuate titles and to set off a speaker’s exact words. Remember that quotation marks always come in pairs. One set comes before the quoted words, and a closing set comes after them, like this:

  Dad said, Watch for wildlife on the Mississippi.

To Set Off Spoken Words

Use quotation marks before and after the exact words of the speaker.

  A bald eagle! I shouted.

  Dad replied, They fish the Mississippi all along here.
