The Quote Can’t Stand Alone (To the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”) The Quote Can’t Stand Alone All Quotes need signal phrases and citations to call home.
Using Signal Phrases USE COLON : When signal phrase is a complete sentence! Example: Hamilton examines Huxley’s attitude toward war: “Quote.” USE COMMA, When signal phrase is an incomplete phrase! Example: Beetz states in his article, “Quote.”
In- text Citation examples Kirk Beetz, professor of English at Harvard University, states in his article, “Overcoming Adversity,” that there are “many obstacles that society as a whole faced in the 18 th century” (23). Beetz also claims, “Gender roles were subverted in many of Austen’s novels” (24). The lack of submission in Austen’s novels show how “gender roles were subverted” (Beetz 24). Remember, only PRINT sources have page numbers! Joan DeMarco, author of “Patriarchal Societies in the 17 th Century” states, “Father figures controlled the household.” (no page for web source, period inside!)
