  From a recent article in The New Yorker: “Inverted commas” is in the category of Britishism for which there’s an exact American equivalent, like “advert” (“advertisement,” “ad”); in this case, it’s “quotation marks.” It’s actually more annoying than that because the whole notion of inverted commas doesn’t make sense in the U.S., where we use double quotation marks. Rule 6. Quotation marks are used for components, such as chapter titles in a book, individual episodes of a TV series, songs from a Broadway show or a music album, titles of articles or essays in print or online, and shorter works such as short stories and poems.

If you are ending a sentence with a quotation there is no logical reason why the full stop should be inside the qu. Quotation marks, also called 'inverted commas', are of two types: single and double. British practice is normally to enclose quoted matter between single quotation marks, and to use double quotation marks for a quotation within a quotation: 'Have you any idea', he said, 'what "dillygrout" is?'

Quotation Mark (Inverted Commas) double " "single ' ' Used to separate a direct quote from the rest of the sentence. Use a comma to introduce a quote after words like said, asked, or exclaimed. Always keep any punctuation that is part of the quote inside the quotation marks. .   FYI—I updated this article on Jan. 15, The topic of character thoughts has come up repeatedly for me in the last couple of weeks, and I promised to address punctuation for inner dialogue.. Inner dialogue is simply the speech of a character to himself. He hears it and the reader hears it, but other characters have no idea what’s going on in his head.   How to use Inverted Commas / Speech Marks - Duration: Mr T's Phon views.
