Posted on 2011-04-30 11:02:04
- Use a question mark after a question.
Example: Isn"t the Mason-Dixon line what separates y"all from youse guys?
- Place the question mark inside of closing quotation marks if it is part of the quotation.
Example: In a dream, I heard someone asking, “Isn"t atheism a nonprophet organization?"
- Place the question mark outside of the closing quotation marks if it is not part of the quotation.
Example: Was it your mother who said, “The Lord prefers common-looking people; that"s the reason he made so many of them"? (In such a circumstance, it"s okay to drop the period from the quotation.)
