    Drop Quote

    In a recent English class that featured article writing, it was mentioned several times that some of the articles needed to add more "drop Quotes". What is the definition of a drop quote in regard to the preceding?

    No one has answered this question, which you posted a month ago, so I'll tell you what I know--though it's not really an answer.

    A "drop quote" is a kind of puzzle, where words are in scrambled order, and you have to unscramble them to solve the puzzle.

    But I don't see how that fits in with the context you have, about articles that need more drop quotes.

    best wishes

    Re: Drop Quote

    A "drop quote," also called a "pull quote," is a section of text taken from the body of a story and enlarged, and set out from the other copy.

    Take a look at this page. The large portion of text with the numeral 79 is a drop quote.

    Thank you! I'd been looking at these all my life and never knew what they were called.
