How to Use Quotation Marks | Grammar Lessons
Watch more Grammar Lessons videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515799-How-to-Use-Quotation-Marks-Grammar-Lessons I like to think of the quotation mark as the punctuation that can save your job, or save your grade in the class. And that's because we use of quotation mark to attribute ideas and words to the original speaker, so you use quotation mark to show someone else has said something, either verbally, or they've written it on the page and if you don't use the quotation mark, when you are duplicating someone's work; it's what we called plagiarism, we definitely want to avoid that. Grammatically speaking, punctuating the quotation mark can be a little tricky, so I'll show you a few examples, quotation marks often take two forms, we'll either lead with the quotation and give the attribution at the end of the sentence, or we'll lead with the attribution and, and with the quotation. So here is an example how to punctuate a sentence when we lead with a quotation: We have "It's a lovely day" Jim said. Well, in this case notice that we start with the quotation mark, we capitalized the first word and we keep the comma inside of the quotation mark, another words we, we tuck the punctuation inside of those quotes and then we give the attribution "Jim said" and the period doesn't come until the very end of the sentence. Now, in this sentence we flip the order and we're starting with the attribution, so we say Jim said, we capitalize "J" cause it's the beginning of the sentence and this time we put the comma after said and then we [inaudible 00:43:40] into the quota. So, Jim said, comma, quotation mark, capital, it's a lovely day, period quotation mark. Can be a little tricky, because sometimes the comma goes inside of the quotation, sometimes it goes outside; it depends on how you're setting your sentence out. So, let's say that it's such a nice day out that Jim tells his coworkers he is sick and he gets out of the office for the day. Well, I might say something like, Jim said he was feeling sick, but we are skeptical. So, you can see this is taken on a different form, because we're only quoting a small part of something that Jim said, not a complete sentence and we're tucking it into our sentence; so that even without the quotation marks it would read well, it would read as a complete sentence. Jim said he was feeling sick, but we are skeptical. So, in this case you can put a quotations around his partial quote and you don't have to capitalize the first of his quote. So, I hope that this makes; using quotation marks a little bit clearer for you.

Basic Punctuation: Periods, Commas, Semicolons, Colons, Apostrophes, Quotation Marks, Parentheses
This video shows how to identify and recognize the seven most-common pieces of punctuation: the period (full stop), comma, semicolon, colon, apostrophe, quotation marks, and parentheses. I touch on some uses but will delve into each piece of punctuation (and others) later in this series. Each piece of punctuation will receive its own video!

Writing & Punctuation: How to use COLONS & SEMICOLONS
Using proper English punctuation shows that you are a sophisticated and intelligent writer. Also, using punctuation improperly can often change the meaning of your sentence. In this lesson, I will teach you how to use two key punctuation marks: the colon and semicolon. The colon is made of two dots and has three uses in writing. The semicolon is made up of a dot and comma and has three different uses in writing. Even native English speakers often use these punctuation marks improperly. But I guarantee that after watching this video, you will master them fully. You'll even get a chance to practise by doing the quiz afterwards at https://www.engvid.com/writing-punctuation-how-to-use-colons-semicolons/ Next, why don't you watch my lesson on how to be a better writer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHdzv1NfZRM&t=0s&index=7&list=PLpRs5DzS7VqpcTS7hXJU4ARPwSETGI1gy TRANSCRIPT Welcome back to engVid with me, Benjamin. Today's lesson is a writing one that is going to really show that you are a sophisticated writer. That means that you are intelligent and that you've got a good understanding of English grammar because you can use these two key punctuation marks. Introducing on my right the semi-colon. Looks a little bit like this, comma with a full stop on top (;), and on my left the colon. No, I'm not talking about your posterior; I am talking about this: Dot, dot (:). Okay. First the semi-colon. What's it used for? A semi-colon is used to replace a conjunction or full stop. Okay? So rather than lots of boring, short sentences, I spice things up by putting in a semi-colon. What it does is it connects two closely related ideas. So, instead of saying: "They love chocolate."-full stop-"I can't stand it." or: "They love chocolate, and I can't stand it", you put a semi-colon in there. It just... It just gives it better effect. It's just... It's just more interesting the way it sounds and the way it looks on the page. Second way in which we use a semi-colon: To separate items in a list. For example, this is talking about a pudding that I'm making, a dessert if you don't use this English word, here. "For the pudding, I need:" Okay? Spot the colon; we'll talk about that in a moment. Now we are putting the semi-colons to separate the ingredients for the pudding. "Berries, fresh summer ones;" okay? So that's one... It's the berries, this is the description of the berries. Okay? I put the semi-colon after I finish talking about the berries. "...milk", now let's give a little bit of detail about the milk: "full-fat milk;" always tastier. Okay? Put a semi-colon after that. "...a new whisk, because I stood on the last", okay? "...and", okay? So we don't need a semi-colon here because we're using "and", and then you put the final secret ingredient. Let's move over to the colon. Colons introduce lists, like we have just seen here: "This is what I need for my pudding:" dong, dong dong, now I'm going to put my list. Colons isolate words to create emphasis. "He knew what he was feeling: fear." You might want to have a look at my lesson on suspense and tension writing, because we cover lots of sentences like this. Colons also introduce quotes. So if you're doing an academic essay, and you're saying: "Idea, idea, idea, idea, idea", oo, now I need to take someone else's idea and write, and sort of put it in speech marks. Before you use that person's words, yup, you use the colon. Okay? So if I was writing an essay about Shakespeare, just before I used Shakespeare's words, I would put the colon. Okay, we're going to look at a passage now and we're going to think about when we should use a semi-colon and when we should use a colon. So here we are with a little passage that I have just written for you. I'll read it out to you. As I'm reading it, I want you to think of where the semi-colons and colons should go. "You need to do three things to be successful in English, practice with native speakers, learn and revise your vocab, and master your grammar. It helps enormously to visit the U.K., you'll understand the culture. Together we can achieve fluency, together we can grow." Hmm. What do we think about that? Okay, so let's have a look. "You need to do three things to be successful in English", and then it starts saying what those things are. So what we have here is the start of a list. Remember: If you're introducing a list, you need to put a colon. There we are, a colon to introduce my list. Now we have three things that we need to do to get better at English. What do we do to separate items in a list? That's right, you put your semi-colon, so we'll just put a dot there, one there, and then you don't need one here. "It helps enormously to visit the U.K., you'll understand the culture." So, this here we're starting an explanation, we're giving an important reason, so I would say that a colon is required there.

Punctuation Tip: Quotation Marks with Colon and Semicolon
Quotation marks always go inside colons and semicolons. This punctuation rule applies to American and British punctuation. • The attendees were in a room named "Madison": Lou, Sam, and Sue. • John said it's "one step forward"; Mary said it's "one step backwards." • I might be described as "green"; however, I am a seasoned pro. Several rules are involved with the use of quotation marks. In American punctuation, the periods and commas are placed INSIDE the quotation marks. • Sam said, "Let's celebrate by going to the movies." In British punctuation, the periods and commas are placed OUTSIDE the quotation marks. •Sam said, "Let's celebrate by going to the movies". However, both American and British punctuation styles are in agreement when it comes to the colon and semicolon. The colon and semicolon are always placed outside the ending quotation mark. #PunctuationDaily

Punctuation Lessons: COLONS AND SEMICOLONS
This lesson, which deals with the colon and the semi colon, is part of a series of lessons I am making on how we use punctuation marks. Please go to my website for more information. https://www.skype-lessons.com/online-... USE COLONS (1 clause must be independent) 1) To explain, conclude, or follow from the main clause There's one thing I really loathe: impatience. We had two options: pay the money or suffer the consequences. There are two ways we could do this: the easy way or the hard way. 2) In direct speech The teacher would say the following: 'Do your homework!' 3) In lists Pancakes are made from simple ingredients: eggs, flour, and milk. USE SEMICOLONS (2 clauses must be independent) 1) Offers additional or contrasting information. Demonstrates a relation between the two independent clauses. (It replaces the coordinating conjunctions: and, but, for, so, yet, nor, or) I ordered lamb; she had a salad. I'd love to visit Italy; I've always loved Italian food. 2) Use with the following conjunctive adverbs: otherwise, however, moreover, therefore, nevertheless, consequently, accordingly, consequently, instead. We didn't go to the museum; instead, we went home. 3 students came to the class; however, only 1 was prepared. Exercises here.

In this lesson, I’m going to teach you the rules for using the seven most important punctuation marks, so that you can write correct English without making mistakes. There are exercises within the lesson to help you practice, and as always there is a final quiz at the end of the video. So, if you’re ready, let’s begin. We’re going to start with terminal punctuation. ‘Terminal’ means the end, so terminal punctuation marks are what we use to end a sentence. There are three of these: the period or the full stop, the exclamation mark, and the question mark. Let’s look at the period first. This mark is called the period in American English (AmE means American English), and it’s called the full stop in British English. It is used to mark the end of declarative and imperative sentences. I’ll explain. Here are some examples: “I teach English.” “We had pizza for dinner last night.” “If it rains tomorrow, I’ll bring my umbrella.” These sentences are called declarative sentences because they declare something; they give us some information. And at the end of each sentence, you see a period or full stop. Imperative sentences are commands or requests: “Please don’t feed the animals.” You might see this on a sign in a zoo. “Let me know what time your flight arrives.” “If it rains tomorrow, bring your umbrella.” Let’s now turn to the exclamation mark. It is used to convey strong emotion or feeling. Have a look at these two sentences: Both of them mean the same thing. The first sentence, which ends in a period, has no special feeling or emotion; it’s like saying “I’m really excited about my new job.” Doesn’t sound like I’m very excited, does it? That’s why we use the exclamation mark: “I’m really excited about my new job!” – it tells our reader to read the sentence with emotion – in this sentence, the emotion is excitement. This next sentence: “If you come to work late tomorrow, you’re fired!” Imagine a manger saying this to an employee. So, this expresses anger. In the same way, you can show many other feelings including surprise, joy, fear etc. using the exclamation mark. Now, both of these sentences are declarative, but you can also use the exclamation mark in an imperative sentence like this one: “Johnny, don’t play with your food!” You can imagine a mother saying that angrily to her son. So, it’s a strong or strict command. Another place where we use the exclamation mark is after interjections. Here are a couple of sentences: “Ouch! You just stepped on my foot!” “Wow! What a beautiful house!” Interjections are words like “ouch” and “wow” which are used to express feelings. So, remember: if you want to convey strong emotion in a sentence, put an exclamation mark at the end of it. If there’s no special feeling, just end the sentence with a period. OK, let’s turn now to the third terminal punctuation symbol: the question mark. It is used to mark the end of a question. So, it’s very straightforward: if a sentence is a question, then put a question mark at the end of it. Here are some examples: “What do you do?” “Are we allowed to feed the animals?” “If it rains tomorrow, should I bring my umbrella?” “Are you excited about your new job?” “Who lives in that house?” So, the rule is: if a sentence is a question, it must end with a question mark. Alright, let’s do a small exercise now. There are four sentences on the screen. I want you to add periods or full stops, exclamation marks and question marks where necessary. Stop the video, think about your answers, then play the video and check. OK, here are the answers. If you want, stop the video again, check your answers, then play the video and continue. Before we move on to the next topic, a quick note on spacing. Notice that there is no space between the last letter of a sentence and the terminal punctuation mark. If you put a space there, it’s wrong. But, when you begin a new sentence, you should leave a space after the terminal mark, and you should start the new sentence with a capital letter.

Learn Punctuation: period, exclamation mark, question mark
http://www.engvid.com You see them all the time, but do you know how to use them correctly? In this lesson we go over the basic punctuation marks used to end a sentence. I also teach you to identify and avoid the run-on sentence, which is a common mistake ESL students and native speakers make in their writing. Watch this lesson to learn the quick and easy rules for using the period, exclamation mark, and question mark! Then take the quiz on it here: http://www.engvid.com/learn-punctuation-period-exclamation-mark-question-mark/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome to www.engvid.com again. My name's Adam. Today, I'm responding to some requests for punctuation lessons. So, today's lesson is about punctuation. I'm going to focus on the period, the exclamation mark, and the question mark. Now, you're thinking: why am I beginning with these three? Because these are the ends of sentences. Right? These always come at a very specific point in the sentence, always at the end, always with a clear purpose. What is the purpose? A period ends a sentence. Seems simple enough, everybody knows this. Correct? But it's not that simple. Many, many times I've seen students writing and not putting the period in the correct place. What... Another thing you have to remember about the period is what comes after it is always a capital letter. Okay? Many people forget the capital after a period. A period ends a sentence which means it ends a complete idea. Whatever comes after the period is already a new idea. Of course, one idea flows to the next idea; one idea builds on the previous idea, but they are two separate ideas. When you have completed your sentence, when you have completed your idea - put a period. And British people call this: "a full stop". Same idea, means: full stop, done, next idea. Okay? With a capital letter. Always don't forget the capital letter. Or never forget the capital letter. Okay? Another thing to remember about the period is that once you have a sentence with a complete independent clause and you don't have another independent clause with a conjunction, "and", "but", "so", "or", etcetera or a semi-colon-this is a semi-colon-that means your sentence is finished. If you have two independent clauses in a sentence and you don't have the conjunction, you don't have the semi-colon, means you have a run-on sentence. Okay? A "run-on sentence" is a sentence that has two subjects, two verbs, no spacing, no conjunction, no period. Okay? Let's look at an example of a run-on sentence. "Stacey and Claire went shopping at the mall with Ted and Alex they bought new clothes." Does this sentence seem okay to you? If it does, there's a problem. Okay? We have "Stacey and Claire" as your subject-sorry, this is a "v" actually-"went shopping at the mall". Where? "With Ted and Alex". With who? This is a complete idea. "Stacey and Claire went shopping at the mall with Ted and Alex." Your idea is complete, this is what they did. Now, at the mall, what did they do? "They bought new clothes." I put a period, I put a capital. I have to separate ideas, therefore, two separate sentences. Now, is there any other way I can fix this? Of course. I can put a comma after: "Alex," I could put the word: "and they bought", in which case, that sentence is fine. "And" joins two independent. So, every time you're writing... Punctuation, of course, is for writing, not for speaking; we don't see punctuation in speaking. Every time you write, check your sentences. If you have two independent clauses, means two subject, subject, verb, and then subject, verb. If you have two of these, two combinations of subject and verb without a period between them, without a conjunction, without a semi-colon - you have a run-on sentence. Okay? Just to make sure, here's another sentence. I'll take this away. Something came before. "As a result," -of whatever came before-"the police evacuated the tenants of the building they thought this would be safer." Oh. "The tenants of the building they thought this would be safer." Wait a minute. What's going on? Where does the sentence end? Where does the idea end? What's the next part of the sentence? Okay? "The police evacuated". Who? "The tenants". Which tenants? "Of the building". Okay? "The building they thought this", no. Okay, "The building that they thought this", no, doesn't make sense. So this must be the next subject, "they thought". Who are "they"? The police. "They thought". What? "This would be safer." So now, I need to put something here. I need to break up these two sentences because they're two separate ideas. This sentence explains why they did the action in the first sentence.
Quotation Marks - Punctuation - Easy English Grammar
