    Default Hurry

    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?

    1) footnote it. Attach a footnote after the quotation. Shouldn't you have quotation marks?

    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?
