Grammar in Action – Question Mark Outside the Quotation Marks

As Mandi covered in her post on properly punctuating quotes, the question mark would go outside the quotation marks in this sentence because the question is the statement preceding the quote and not what is going on inside the quotes.

If you are firm on a decision that the committee doesn’t like they bring out their weapons and say, "Let's go"?


Another thing to point out in this example is the importance of paying attention to what it is you are transcribing. This sentence is a question; however, you needed to be listening to the tone and what the interviewer was really saying to know that. This attention to detail can be one of the things that sets you apart as a great transcriptionist.
