Examples of Quotation Marks

Quotation marks are a set of punctuation marks, single (‘ ’) or double (“ ”), used either to mark the beginning and end of a title or quoted passage or to indicate that a word or phrase is regarded as slang or jargon or is being discussed rather than used within the sentence.

Quotation marks can be used to set off direct quotations: “Let’s drive to the park,” he recommended.

Quotation marks can be used to set off titles of articles, stories, chapters, essays, magazines, films, poems, songs, T.V. programs, and radio shows:

  • Chapter 1, “The Last Survivor”
  • They sang the “National Anthem”
  • “Mystic Mountain” episode of Bob Ross – The Joy of Painting

Quotation marks can be used to set off words and phrases that are used in an nontraditional way or that can be preceded by so-called: James’ “fine” was volunteering his weekends at the camp
