    Punctuation with dialogue

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by doggiedude, May 6, 2016.

    Here's another punctuation issue I've run across.

    “Where shall I stand?” came from the bot.
    “Where shall I stand,” came from the bot?
    “Where shall I stand?” Came from the bot.

    I normally would only use a , at the end of the quote but with ? and ! sentences that doesn't seem right. I've been using that first one. I hope it's correct.

    First one.

    Though I wonder why you're saying "came from the bot" instead of "asked the bot?"

    I suppose that works also.
