MLA Citation Style 8th Edition: How to Paraphrase and Quote

How to Paraphrase and Quote

Following are new points that concern the writing in a research project suggested by MLA.org

  • For works in a language not written in the Latin alphabet, writers must choose between giving titles and quotations in romanization or in the language’s writing system (MLA 74, 91).
  • Two forward slashes (//) mark stanza breaks in run-in quotations of verse (MLA 78).
  • If a block quotation of prose contains internal paragraphing, the first line of the quotation now begins without a paragraph indention even if one is present in the source (MLA 77).
