Quote marks are used to denote that a piece of writing is a quotation or a paraphrase.
Quotation marks are also used to mark parts of text which are difficult to read without the aid of a glossary.
Quotations should be written in the first person singular or plural.
For example, if a person says “he said that” in a conversation, the phrase “he” should be used, not “she”.
If a person is speaking, say “he was talking”, not “he”, “he, she” or “he and she”.
The word “she” is usually used as a plural pronoun.
Quotes should not be used to identify the speaker’s identity, however.
If a piece is said to be an account of events, for example, it is often preferable to use “he did”, rather than “she did”.
However, if the speaker is known to have been the subject of the quotation, use “they did”.
The following are examples of how to use a quotation mark to identify an author or authorial quote.
Quoted author: “He had a great sense of humor.
I remember he had this big big old thing in his room, and he used to bring it home and take it out to the movies.”
Quoted speaker: “It’s a great story.”
The following examples show how to write a sentence that uses quotation marks: “This was a good day for the boys” Quoted writer: “The boys went to the prom and the prom was a great success.”
Quotes can also be used in place of the noun they refer to, but they should be treated as a separate word.
For instance, if “the boys” refers to a group of boys, and the noun “boys” refers only to one of them, the two should be omitted.
When writing a sentence with quotation marks, it can be helpful to use them in pairs or groups.
For each pair or group of quotation marks you want to use, write the phrase with quotation points in the middle of the sentence.

A person who was the subject and the object of a quotation should be identified as the author and the subject.
For more information on author and subject, read the author section of The Sport Biblically.
If the quotation is in a book, book publishers may want to check with the publisher or with the book’s publisher, for details about when and how the book was first published.
If there is no copyright notice, the publisher may also wish to include the title of the book in the author or subject line of the page.
For an example of a book’s author, read The Sport Book, published in 2003 by The Sport Publishing Company.

Author: “I think I can see the future now” Author: ‘He said that’ Author: I hope it’s a good one” Author is used to indicate that a person has written a statement or a quotation.
It can also refer to the author’s attitude toward a particular topic.
Author is usually followed by the word “of” or by the letter “O” (or “o” or even “u”).
Author is often followed by a comma (,) and sometimes a period.
If it is followed by quotation marks (.), it indicates that the quotation can be used for emphasis.
If an author’s statement is a paraphrased version of a previous author’s, the author is often described as “repertoire”, or “originality”.
If the statement is based on something else than a quotation of the author, it usually indicates that it is not a quotation but is based only on paraphrasing.

A good example of using an author and a subject is “He was the father of five children.”
This example is often written as “He gave me five sons.”
In this example, author is followed with the word author.
If “father” or a similar word is used as an author, author should be replaced by the name of the person or persons who wrote the statement.
Author may also be followed by “she,” or “they”, or a combination of the two.
Author’s name can also appear as an abbreviation (a “abbreviation”) to distinguish the author from the author of the original statement.
