    need the approval of

    Hi teachers,

    I want to use the word "approval" in a sentence.

    Is "In this matter, I need the approval of others" correct?


    Thanks.

    Yes, with a period to end the sentence.

    Hi Dave;


    Do you mean that the period/full stop should go inside that quotation, please?

    Re: need the approval of

    No. I think Dave was just reminding the OP that the when the sentence is written as a standalone sentence, it must have a full stop. The only reason it doesn't have a full stop in post #1 is that it is enclosed in quotation marks and forms part of a longer question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
