Punctuation and Parentheses

Margie Wakeman Wells General Leave a Comment

When using a blurb inside of parentheses, there is a capital letter and the punctuation inside when the blurb contains the whole thought and a lowercase letter and the punctuation outside when the blurb is part of a larger thought.

…Q    Where were you injured?
…A     (Indicating.)

…Q     Where were you injured?
….A     Right here (indicating).

Happy punctuating!
