Single Quotation Marks

" " ' ' ' ' ' " " " ' ' '' " ' ' ' '' ' " "

Introduction

If you need to use two rounds of inverted commas, use single quotation marks.

They look like this ' '

They also work in pairs, just like inverted commas.

For example:

• "My sister just goes around singing 'Postman Pat' all day!" complained Amelie. "I'm sick of it!"

single quotation marks (') used since we have already used speech marks (")
