What is the difference between British English and American English citation marks, and how to put them in a sentence?
Traditionally, the British use single quotation (or citation) marks ('), while the Americans use double (“).
Then in BE, one puts quotation marks logically, punctuation is only included where it's a part of the quoted text, while in AE, punctuation marks are always inside the quotation. Let's illustrate this with a short sentence.
BE: 'It's John's cat', he said.
AE: “It's Johns cat,” he said.
Compare the comma after “cat”.
For me, I apply the British way, because I can see no sense in including punctuation that doesn't belong there into a quotation. However, I use American double quotation marks, because single ones are confused with apostrophes in the text (I'm, it's, etc.,...) and with genitive. We can see this in the short example above. If you look at the BE, it's confusing for the eye. In a longer text it might slow down the reading.
You can use which system you want, but think of how you want it and do it that way consistently in your writings.
Who wrote the influential and controversial novel “Atlas Shrugged”?
The novel is praised libertarian circles, and is controversial to many others, because Rand presents the idea of the total failure of government coercion – which is part her philosophy, objectivism. She advocated for “rational selfishness”.
I will not further elaborate on her philosophy here and now, but I certainly recommend this novel. By all means, explore Ayn Rand and her works, that might change your whole view on world and society.
A very expensive spice is sometimes replaced with ground (and much cheaper) tonka beans - which are sold as the genuine thing. What spice is the genuine thing? It's the second most expensive spice, surpassed in price only by saffron.
We are talking about vanilla; that is to say genuine vanilla.
Since genuine vanilla is so expensive, synthetic vanilla are mostly used instead. But ground tonka beans are sometimes sold as genuine vanilla.
Flags with three coloured stripes (equally sized stripes in three different colours), horizontally or vertically, normally symbolise republics. However, there are three European monarchies with such flags (there are historical reasons for that). Which three monarchies are we talking about?
