what are italic words in paragraphs????


In English, we use italics for the titles of books and movies (and anything else that would be underlined, not put in quotation marks).

We also use italics for words from another language. For example, if you use a French phrase in your paper, you'd put those words in italics to indicate that they are not misspelled, but are from a language other than English.

Some authors use italics to indicate when their characters are thinking; and they usually use quotation marks to indicate when characters are speaking.

And, finally, italics are sometimes used for emphasis, but that use should be sparingly done. Better yet, you should use bold to indicate emphasis -- and use it sparingly!
