Student or Learner
I have to present three ways to introduce a quotation. I am to present my classmates with a definition; the three that I have are: 1. Signal Phrase 2. Formal Introduction 3. Blended quote. I know what the definition is for a signal phrase however I can grab a hold on the definition for a formal introduction and a blended quote. Your help is greatly appreciated
Have a look here. Scroll down to where it says, PUNCTUATION OPTIONS IN THE INTRODUCTION OF A QUOTATION
Following a word or word group that introduces a quotation, a writer may choose one of three possible punctuation options: a colon, a comma, or no punctuation at all. Which to use often depends upon the context of the entire sentence and/or the writer's feelings..
If you have questions, let us know.
All the best.
