Writing Effective Dialogue: Unnecessary Quotation Marks
I’m traveling today, so I’m postponing part three in my dialogue series for next week. I’ll probably talk more about correct use of quotation marks at some point in the future, but today I wanted to quickly warn you once and for all against using quotation marks for “emphasis.” You’ve all seen it on signage, a use of quotation marks that makes you “strongly” question the author’s “meaning.” If you don’t know what I mean, take a look at this fine collection of examples, courtesy of Distractify.
What’s the worst example of misused quotation marks you’ve seen?
Hi Erin, I think those are some of the funniest and worst uses of quotation marks I ever did see. Thanks for sharing!
