Is there any punctuation--obviously not standard--for when you rearrange a quotation? It would be similar to an ellipsis, but indicate movement rather than elision.
For example, you are given the following line:
If one yields to it one's character narrows and cheapens.
The structure of your writing, though, favors "It 'narrows and cheapens' 'one's character.'" This, though, hideously places two quotation marks next to each other. Of course, you could change your sentence to fit the original order but this is not always easy. Has anyone ever introduced a punctuation mark that would go between the two segments?
As an example of what I mean, I hypothesize a symbol:
It "narrows and cheapens <> one's character,"
where <> is my substitute for what I seek.
Please do not tell me how to use quotations. I do not need an education on how to get around this need. I am only curious if there is such a symbol.
