In-text citations of websites

posted by .

How do I make a citation that's in-text for the online etymology dictionary site? Basically, what goes in parentheses?

  • In-text citations of websites -

    Whatever the first word of the Works Cited entry is -- that's what goes in parentheses in the text.

    If you looked up "father," for example, then "Father" should be the first word in your Works Cited entry for that link, right?

    Then your in-text citation would be this:

    thanks for clearing that up

  • so then..? -

    if i looked up the word hope, :
    exactly like that? nothing else?

  • so then..? -

    Isn't the word "hope" listed with a capital H in your Works Cited? It should be, and therefore the in-text should be

    --------- ("Hope").

  • so then..? -

    Oh. Ok, yes. thanks

    It's a system that's meant to simplify everything, but I think it's muddied it all! But once you get used to the system, it's easy.
