Quotations and commas
posted by R .
It seems as though I have forgotten where to put commas when I'm listing and using quotations...
Would it be...
I see words that refer to “planning”, “listing”, and “outlining”, which are sequential related.

Do the commas go within the quoations or outside the quoations?
I have always been taught the commas go inside the quotations. Let me show an example;
I am so glad said the girl
"I am so glad," said the girl.
We reviewed today in class they go inside; that's what I've always learned and see in books.
Right, so have I... I just wasn't sure because it was a list, and not a quote to what someone was saying...
Thanks to the both of you :)
Whether it's a list or dialogue, the commas go inside the quotations.
