Rules for Punctuating Quotes from Another Source

  1. When quoting material from another source, place quotation marks before and after the source’s exact words. Separate the quoted material from the quote tag by commas.

Example:

In The Giver, the main character Jonas thinks, “He felt self-conscious, realizing that he, too, had that look” (Lowry 21).

  1. Use a period after the parenthetical citation (author page number) to end the sentence containing the quote.

Example:

In The Giver, the main character Jonas thinks, “He felt self-conscious, realizing that he, too, had that look” (Lowry 21).



  1. If a question mark or an exclamation point occurs at the end of the quote, use the question mark or exclamation point to separate the quoted material. Continue to use the period after the parenthetical citation.

Example:

Jonas wonders, “How could someone not fit in?” (Lowry 48).



  1. When writing only part of a quoted sentence, do not begin the quotation with a capital letter unless the person you are quoting capitalized it or it is the first word of the sentence.

Example:

Jonas refers to the community as “meticulously ordered” (Lowry 48).



  1. When quoting dialogue, use single quotes within double quotes.

Example:

In The Giver, the “Chief Elder moved ahead in her speech ‘This is the time,’ she began, looking directly at them, ‘when we acknowledge differences’” (Lowry 51).



  1. Use an ellipsis to show that one or more words have been left out of a quotation.

Example:

The Giver tells Jonas, “’Now for the first time I think there might be a way,’ The Giver said slowly. ‘And you brought that to my attention barely’—he glanced at the clock—‘two hours ago’” (Lowry 155).



Partial quote with ellipsis:

The Giver tells Jonas, “’for the first time I think there might be a way…And you brought that to my attention barely…two hours ago’” (Lowry 155).

Using these rules, punctuate your quotes from The Giver below:
