We are brailling a textbook with a section in the back on grammar/spelling/punctuation.
We are seeking confirmation on brailling the quotation marks in the sample below. Would we apply UEB 7.6.4 When an opening nonspecific quotation mark would be read as the wordsign "his", use the appropriate specific quotation mark instead.
According to this, we believe we would use the specific quotation marks for the (""), since the opening could be read as the word his.
My only concern with that is the Example sentence that follows. If we apply this rule to ("") , then what about the Example sentence? We have used the nonspecific throughout the entire text. Wouldn't we use the nonspecific for the example sentence? We have not used the specific anywhere else in the book, but now we are showing the specific in parentheses and the nonspecific in the example and throughout the rest of the text. It seems confusing and inconsistent.
Quotation Marks ("") are used to set off someone's exact words. A comma always separates what is said from who said it. Periods and commas go inside of Quotation marks.
