Get in the swing!
This month’s workout centers on sections 6.09–11 of CMOS 16, “Punctuation in Relation to Closing Quotation Marks.” Advanced editors might tackle the questions cold; learners can study sections 6.09–11 of the Manual before answering the questions.
(Subscribers to The Chicago Manual of Style Online may click through to the linked sections of the Manual. For a 30-day free trial of CMOS Online, click here.)
[Editor’s update: These styles have not changed in the 17th edition, although their section numbers may have changed.]
Note: These questions are designed to test knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style. Other style guides may have different rules and guidelines. American punctuation rules have significant differences from those practiced in the UK, Canada, and other English-speaking countries.
