How do you address a book?

According to the Chicago Manual of Style and the Modern Language Association, titles of books (and other complete works, such as newspapers and magazines), should be italicized.

Which correctly shows the title of a book?

Titles of full works like books or newspapers should be italicized. Titles of short works like poems, articles, short stories, or chapters should be put in quotation marks. Titles of books that form a larger body of work may be put in quotation marks if the name of the book series is italicized.

Do you put a comma after someone’s title?

Commas should sometimes be placed before – and after – names and titles. Let’s start with the fact that unless a name or title is the last word(s) in a sentence, it can either be used with no commas at all, OR with a comma both before and after. It is incorrect to place only one comma before the name or title.

How do you ask a question with a comma?

One type of comma you might see a little more often with a question is associated with the comma rule of “direct address.” You use this when you’re “directly addressing” a person or group in the sentence (question or otherwise), and you do so to set that person/group apart from the rest of the text.

Can you use a colon before a question?

Use a colon at the end of a complete statement to introduce a question. Example: The primary question is this: Should we give up or keep working diligently toward our goal? Use a colon to separate a title from its subtitle. Use a colon after the salutation in a formal letter.
