Quotation Marks in Dialogue

  • Use quotation marks before and after a direct quotation, the exact words that a speaker says or writes.
  • Use a comma or commas to separate a clause, such as he said, from the quotation itself. 
  • Place the comma outside the opening quotation marks but inside the closing quotation marks.
  • Place a period inside closing quotation marks. 
  • Place a question mark or exclamation mark inside the quotation marks when it is part of the quotation.

Examples:

  • “Why are you out of breath?” my brother asked.
  • “I ran back,” I replied, “because I thought I saw a bear.”
