quotation
marks – Follow these rules:

  • The period and the comma always go within the quotation marks.
  • The dash, the semicolon, the question mark and the exclamation point go within the quotation marks when they apply to the quoted matter only. They go outside when they apply to the whole sentence.
  • Examples: I enjoyed reading "Gone with the Wind." Did you read the story by O'Connor titled "The Geranium"?
  • If a quotation is longer than a single paragraph, quotation marks are used at the beginning of each paragraph and at the end of the last paragraph only. Quotation marks are not used at the end of any paragraph except for the last.
  • Quotations within quotations are set off with single quotation marks followed by the double marks. He said, "Jane sang a beautiful rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.'"
  • TITLES OF COMPOSITIONS, PUBLICATIONS WORKS: The general rule is that the titles of long compositions, publications and works, such as books, films, journals, magazines, newspapers, plays and operas, are set in italics; the names of such short works as abstracts, articles, features, lectures, songs, stories and television programs are set within quotation marks.
