[Writing] bibliography, citations, and ..
My Fellow grammarians,
I have a need to write a sentence which looks something like this:
Now each of the phrases in the sentence (e.g. online knowledge, backup brain) was coined by different persons. What is the accepted way (for a newspaper or web article) of adding citation markers in the sentence to refer to the the originator of the phrase in the bibliography ?
K-logging is affectionately referred to as "virtual memory stream", "backup brain" and "online knowledge".
Next, in the same vein as words like synonyms, antonyms etc.. what word describes a pair of words which are opposites. e.g. high/low; fat/thin ..
Thanks to everyone.
For quoted phrases, using inverted commas (as you have done) is fine. If you want to show the originator of each quoted phrase (eg, suppose X said “virtual memory stream”, Y said “backup brain” and Z said “online knowledge”), you can add the name of the originator in brackets after the phrase, as follows:
K-logging is affectionately referred to as “virtual memory stream” (X), “backup brain” (Y) and “online knowledge” (Z).
You can then add a footnote giving brief details of X, Y and Z and their sources.
Well, aren’t they antonyms? You mean a word to describe each pair of them? What about antithesis, then?

How silly I am ? Yes, antonym was what I wanted. Since I didn't know its actual meaning (and didn't bothered to look it up); I thought it meant something else.
