    Quote...unquote

    dear my teachers

    I am an editorial member in our Co. periodical bulletin. i ahve to collect and receive the articles from others.
    one person gave me an article written in english, he began his article with:
    Quote:
    .......................................
    .......................................

    then he finished his article with:
    ..........................................
    .................
    Unquote.

    there was no title for the article.......

    my question now, when will we prepare to publish the article in the Bulletin, shall we delete the above two words and to put a suitable title for the article.

    or these two words should be still there with the article.

    please, inform em about.. and when we use these words?

    regards

    Alyemeni-Yemen

    Re: Quote...unquote

    Usually this would indicate the start of an extract quoted from another source, and it is also more usually used in speech than in writing, where quotation marks [" "] will be used.

    It is not at all clear why the author has done this. You need to ask him for an explanation.
