What is another word for things? I tried looking on the thesaurus but nothing seem to match.

My sentence: " I saw many horrifying things happening.."

  • English -

    Ms. Sue,

    I am writing an essay and I am wondering how you use the quotations marks when there is a quote within a quote.


  • English -

    If you are quoting a passage that contains a quotation, then you use single quotation marks for the internal quotation. Quite rarely, you quote a passage that has a quotation within a quotation. In that rare instance, you would use double quotation marks for the second internal quotation.

    Here's an example of a quotation within a quotation:

    In "The Emperor's New Clothes," Hans Christian Andersen wrote, "'But the Emperor has nothing on at all!' cried a little child."

    Remember to consult your style guide to determine how to properly cite a quote within a quote.

    Thanks Ms. Sue!

    Just to clarify,

    This quote is from Document A.
    " We had witnessed a thing so terrible that it acquired a dreaful holiness. It was a mircale of evil. It was not possible to say with words what we had witnessed, and so we kpet it safely guarded until the time when we could bring it out and show it to others, and say, 'Behold. This is the worst thing man can do'(pg 104-105). " (Doc. A).

  • English -

    The only thing I'd change --

    worst thing man can do'(pg 104-105). "

    worst thing a man can do.'" pg.104-105

  • english -

    In the document, that is how it is written. The period is afer the (104-105) . And do I not need ( ) for the page number? I am a bit confused on why there are ''' after do.

  • english -

    You may be right. I'm pretty rusty on the details of this kind of punctuation.
