Inclusive Language—Quoting from Biased Material

posted by .

The mayors and their wives were invited on a tour of the state buildings.

--Thats the question but I don't get it because nothings stated.

their spouses would be better. Some of the mayors might be wives.

If that sentence is a quotation, then you must use the words exactly as they were originally written, even though it's not entirely "pc" in our world today.

If you are going to paraphrase, then use BobPursley's directions.

=)

What's funny is that this is the very question that I did a search for, and found this site with the same question. What I am not sure of is if I put quotation marks over the wives part or insert spouses with brackets. I think inserting spouses with brackets is the correct way.
