Quotation marks can be tricky. At their most basic, though, they’re very simple.

What you need to know to get started is fairly easy.

Take a look!

Exact words

Place quotation marks around a person’s exact words.

“This is the best trip ever!”
“I cannot wait for lunch.”

It takes two

You cannot use one quotation mark. Why? Because it takes two!

“Come here.”
not “Come here
not Come here”

Capitalization matters

When you’re quoting a complete sentence, the first letter is capitalized.

Jonathan said, “Hand that to me, please.”
not Jonathan said, “hand that to me please.”
