    Interrupted quotations

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by jakeybum, Aug 15, 2015.

    In American English, does the comma go inside the ending quote marks after "I" and "That" (as exampled below)?

    "I," he said, "am totally disgusted by her antics of late."

    "That," he said, "is pure nonsense."

    Thanks.
