Uses of Quotation Marks in Business Letters :


Rule 1 — Every direct quotation should be enclosed in quotation marks.

Example : Henry Clay said, "I would rather be right than be president."

Remark — A direct quotation is one in which the exact words of another are used. It should begin with a capital letter, be set off by a comma, and enclosed in quotation marks.

An indirect quotation is one in which the thought, but not the exact words, of another is used….as, "Clay said that he would rather be right than be president." An indirect quotation should not begin with a capital letter, should not be set off by a comma, and should not be enclosed in quotation marks.

Note — When a direct quotation is separated by intervening words, such words are set off by commas, and each part of the quotation is enclosed in quotation marks…..as, When Fenelon's library was on fire, "God be praised," said he, "that it is not the dwelling of a poor man."

Rule 2 — The titles of books, magazines, essays, etc., should be enclosed in quotation marks or printed in italics.

Examples : "The Ladies' Home Journal *" "Success Magazine," or Success Magazine.
