And as Eric Blair says (George Orwell), don’t use a foreign word when there is an English equivalent. Finally, would you interpret this for me: “breast works of shirting and figured lawn.” (bottom of page one)
How should and where should the parenthetical refference be written?
Also, for "would you interpret this for me: 'breast works ...," why or should I introduce the quote with the colon?
One more question, is it correct to place a comma after an elipse?
2) A colon isn't necessary. Its' a matter of Style. What style book are you using? MLA? I'd end with a period.
3) I'd leave it out. Unless that is you want to add to?
