Grammar Post: MLA Citations and Work Cited

As we discussed last week, the Modern Language Association (MLA) establishes the style most often used in English and other humanities courses.  This week, we will look at the MLA style standards for quoting and citing various kinds of texts. When we talk about citations, there are always 2 parts: the in-text citation and the Work Cited page.

In-Text Citations

It is important as you are writing your essays to signal to the reader when you are quoting, paraphrasing or summarizing the ideas of another author.  Using citations helps you to avoid any appearance of borrowing someone else’s ideas without attribution (otherwise known as plagiarism) and it also helps your own ideas stand out.
