How should I punctuate around quotes?
If I am quoting someone in my writing, and I end their quote with a period, and the end of the quote is also the end of my sentence. How do I properly end the sentence? An example of this is in my last question:
For example, "The file is not updat(e)able.".
Here is another example:
The boss said, "If you don't get your work in by tomorrow, you're fired.".
Is that how you properly end the sentence, or should I leave one of the periods out? If the latter, could you explain why?
