You know the rules for life: Never wear white shoes after Labor Day, brush after every meal, and avoid making rude noises in public. Here, then, are the rules for using question marks.

  • Use a question mark after a question.
  • Example: Isn't the Mason-Dixon line what separates y'all from youse guys?
  • Place the question mark inside of closing quotation marks if it is part of the quotation.
  • Example: In a dream, I heard someone asking, “Isn't atheism a nonprophet organization?”
  • Place the question mark outside of the closing quotation marks if it is not part of the quotation.
  • Example: Was it your mother who said, “The Lord prefers common-looking people; that's the reason he made so many of them”? (In such a circumstance, it's okay to drop the period from the quotation.)
