Re: Is it wrong to say "The sun rises from the east'? Is a full stop needed after 'ea
My personal practice is shown below:
He said, "The sun rises in the east". I have ended the sentence He said "...." with a full stop. For me, to end the words he said with a full stop can cause problems, for example: He said, "The sun rises in the east." very quietly. That full stop might lead the reader to believe that the sentence had ended there.
He asked, "Does the sun rise in the east?" The words he used need a question mark.
It means we can have this: He asked, "Does the sun rise in the east?" very quietly. Fortunately it doesn't arise often.
Did he ask, "Does the sun rise in the east?"? I think the final ?"? is ugly, but unavoidable.
