I am wondering if it is better to use inverted commas or italics when you mouth something, rather than say it aloud.
I cover the receiver and mouth Sorry to my friend.
Or is it better to go with:
I cover the receiver and mouth "Sorry" to my friend.
I am also wondering if Sorry should even have a capital letter or if it should be a small letter. Any thoughts?
Also, if someone's words sound in your head at some point later in a novel, should they be put in italics or inverted commas?
I think back to what Jane told me yesterday: "He'll always be haunted by her."
I think back to what Jane told me yesterday. He'll always be haunted by her.
Any thoughts on what would be best would be greatly appreciated. I have checked the Chicago style guide and am still unsure.
