Presentation Transcript

  1. Punctuating Titles

  2. The 2 Ways to Punctuate Titles: • ITALICIZE or Underline • Use “QUOTATION MARKS”

  3. Use Italics or Underline for . . . • Novels • Plays • Book length poems • Newspapers/Magazines • Movies/TV shows • Works of art/Names of ships • Long Musical Compositions • Album titles

  4. Here are some examples: • Macbeth • The Catcher in the Rye • Seinfeld • The Boston Globe • Sports Illustrated • The Mona Lisa • The Iliad/The Odyssey • The Titanic

  5. Use “Quotation Marks” for . . . • Poetry • Short stories • Articles • Songs • Chapters • Titles of Websites • When referring to Essay titles

  6. Here are some examples: • “The Road Not Taken” • “Biography of a Dress” • “You Give Love a Bad Name”

  7. Helpful Tips: • Capitalize all important words in a title • Prepositions can be capitalized • No title should ever be both italicized and put in quotes • Coordinating conjunctions are usually not capitalized, unless they are at the beginning of a sentence

  8. Helpful Tips (continued): • Punctuation, like periods & commas, goes inside quotation marks • Larger works, like CDs & books, are italicized, and smaller works, like songs & chapters, are put in quotes • Articles (a, an, the) are not always capitalized • Remember---underline titles only when you are handwriting something
