Is it ever acceptable for a period to come after a quote at the end of a sentence?
Should one stick to American style of placing punctation marks within quotes if one uses the american spelling of words?
Original question title: What is the correct syntax to use: “blah blah.” or “blah blah”.?
I wonder why in most of the books I've read, the full stop
. is written before the double quotation mark
"..." if the sentence is ended with a say or something that is surrounded by 2 double quotation marks
"..."! Is it the right syntax? Shouldn't the full stop
. be the last "character" in the sentence?
