Quotations and Citations

To avoid plagiarism  So the reader knows where you’re getting your information  So the reader can consult your sources for further research 

 MLA: Modern Language Association ◦ Citation style developed by the Modern Language Association of America, an organization dedicated to scholarship, research, and teaching, particularly of language and literature ◦ www.mla.org

A list of all the sources you have cited in the text of your paper  Listed alphabetically  Double-spaced, with the second and subsequent lines indented for each entry 

Provide in-text citations for all direct quotes and paraphrases.  Purpose: so the reader can find the full listing of the source of the quote/paraphrase in the Works Cited page 

 The author-page style ◦ Use only the author’s last name in the citation followed by the page number:  Example: Our reality is formed by words, for “our primary world of reality is a verbal one” (Langer 778). ◦ If the author is mentioned in the sentence, then include only the page number of the text:  Example: Langer says, “The fact is that our primary world of reality is a verbal one” (778).  Note that the citation and the period come after the closing quotation mark.

 Non-print sources (ex. from the internet, speeches, presentations) ◦ Include the first item from the corresponding Works Cited entry (ex. author name, article name, website name, etc.) ◦ Do not include the URL of a website, as many URLs change over time ◦ Do not include page numbers, as there are none

 Example: ◦ Our reality is formed by words, for “our primary world of reality is a verbal one” (Langer 778). Verbal language is an integral aspect of the world of humanity. It is a powerful tool that “allows you to implant a thought from your mind directly into someone else’s mind” (Pagel). ◦ Works Cited: Langer, Susanne. “Language.” A World of Ideas: Essential Readings for College Writers. 9th ed. Ed. Lee A. Jacobus. Boston: Bedford, 2013. 768-781. Print. Pagel, Mark. “How Language Transformed Humanity.” TEDGlobal. Edinburgh International Conference Center, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. 13 Jul 2011. Conference Speaker.
