QUOTATION MARKS EXACT WORDS SPOKEN OR WRITTEN BY SOMEONE ELSE Use quotation marks to indicate that the words within are the exact words spoken or written by someone else: She asked, “What time should I be here in the morning?” When I asked him for a raise, he said, “I’ll consider it.” “Being in business is like being in a race.” “I must say,” Ryan added, “that you have all been great.” “Without you,” the chairperson said, “our committee will be at a loss. But we will struggle on.” “We must not hesitate,” warned Mr. Row. “The competition will not allow it.” PARTIAL QUOTATION OF ANOTHER’S WORDS When you quote only part of a speaker’s or writer’s sentence, do not set off or separate the quotation with commas: “An excellent meeting” is what Rachel called it. Rachel called it “an excellent meeting.” Rachel said that the “excellent meeting” lasted a little too long.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
