Hi guys, I'm just wondering what the correct way to punctuate someone being cut off is. I.e.: "I don't think that's a-" "Actually," Bob interrupted.... blah blah blah So, as you can see, the way I thought it worked was with a hyphen immediately after where you're cut off, followed by the closing of the speech marks. The reason I've come to doubt this is, when I'm writing using MS Word, whenever I do this (and exactly this), the speech marks default to 'open'. I have to put the speech marks in, then go back and stick the hyphen between the word and the closed speech marks. It doesn't provoke any of those dammed wiggly green lines, but clearly Word doesn't want me to do it. I did wonder if it could be an ellipsis, but that's for when someone tails off during their speech, rather than being abruptly cut off by another section of dialogue or an event. So, is it just Word or am I doing it wrong? What the correct way of doing this? Thanks in advance!
