British punctuation final questions. Thank you in advance.
I believe I got 'em all correct (I hope!).
"Did she say 'I'm not going'?"
Did she say "I'm not going"?
Did she ask "Am I going?"
"Did she ask 'Am I going?'"
I'd rewrite it as "I'm happy that he did not participate in the conference".
(Comma outside the quotes at the end? I say 'yes' because this is a quote, not a dialogue.)
When it was discovered that he was "besieged by apoplexy", his wife told him to take ten deep breaths.
Joan classified him as a "flatulatory idiot".
She called him a "schmuck", "schlimazel", "harebrained moron", and "purveyor of malicious quips".
"She called him a 'schmuck', 'schlimazel', 'harebrained moron', and 'purveyor of malicious quips'."
(All punctuation good?)
He said, "Joan classified him as a 'flatulatory idiot'."
(Ending punctuation okay? I say yes.)
"When Joan classified him as a 'flatulatory idiot', he became enraged."
Joe said that he had "more than enough BS for one day".
