Okay, ignore the Spanish. I just felt in a Spanish mood. [Delete it if it's necessary. If there's a rule against that, my apologies. I just really like the Spanish language.] I'm writing a report... actually, I'm writing three reports for my AP European History class. I've always been a little confused about citing my sources. I know the purpose of a bibliography, but I've always been a little shaky on parenthetical citations and their uses. I know that parenthetical citations are used for quotations. Do you also use them if you are using information and putting it all into your own words? I have a bibliography of the websites I used. Do I have to use parenthetical citations when I'm writing without using quotes, or is that only a "quotation thing"? Tell me if you don't understand what I'm trying to ask and I will clarify.
