Embedded Quotations

When you write essays from now on, you will be expected to use blended quotations. A blended quotation combines a quote from a story, book, or article with your own ideas.
EMBEDDED QUOTATIONS have three parts:


  1. Signal Phrase – A signal phrase is a group of words that introduces the quotation. The signal phrase should tell readers something about the context of the quote—what person or character said it.

    1. When Gene says…




  1. Quotation – A quotation is a group of words selected from a story, book or article, usually chosen in order to illustrate a big idea from the story. The quotation should be as short as it can without losing the original meaning.

    1. “Nothing endures, not a tree, not love, not even death by violence”




  1. Commentary – The commentary is the place where you explain what the quote means and you tell us why it matters. You can also think of commentary as feelings. How do you feel about the quote? Why did you pick it?

    1. He reveals he has learned a valuable life lesson.




  1. Citation- A citation tells readers from where the information came. You must cite to avoid plagiarism. In parentheses, include author last name and the page number where you got the quote.

    1. (Knowles 6).
