If i am citing from an online article that has NO date, do I put that in the text ?? e.g. ("The Constitution of the United States" n.d.) or do I just completely leave it out?

Honestly, thank you so much for these videos. My son has had some medical issues lately and I've been missing a fair amount of school and I just found out I had an assignment due today using MLA which I have never even heard of before I began my paper and this video explained it perfectly! I've got a nice little step by step section in my notes on MLA now based on this video for me to reference lol.

It is interesting the way you teach about citations so fluidly and yet do not give the links in the description :P

monkey face (1 year ago)
so in-text citation means while you're writing your paragraph note page number and name of the person who said that particular quote? or is this below works cited? this is very confusing.
Angelo Quimoyog (1 year ago)
Awesome! This is helpful, because I was unaware you can cite in different ways. I’ve been using only one style of citation before I watched this video, so thank you! :)

I think you should revisit this notion of a comma after the word "that" at 2:29. "That" is a relative pronoun and this would be grammatically incorrect.

Pingu Bitches (1 year ago)
Do footnotes replace in-text citation, or are they meant to be used in different circumstances? What i mean is, if i just footnoted the end of the sentence and then provided the details in brackets in the same format you are doing (i.e. Author, page number) or (Author, web link) is that an alternative way of doing it or is that wrong? Regardless, i would still have a more information of the sources used on the Bibliography page at the end of the essay, just wondering if you can use either method as a means of also sourcing your work as you go along...

I have a question, in case we have three types of quotations difficult and easy and another one which is in middle of the two previous citations ... well we have direct citation, paraphrased citation and reformulated one according to the level of difficulty my question is which one should be at first? is it direct or reformulated???

What if it's two pages? Would it then be (Bestul 92-93)?
tska84 (2 years ago)
what do you do if you are paraphrasing but need to quote some words in the middle of the sentence, or you have paraphrase that lasts multiple sentences from the same source.

Can someone help me find some good info about how to do APA in text citations for websites?
beccanetta (2 years ago)
Just an FYI, with the Bestul signal phrase example, there should be a comma OR "that" but not both. A comma and "that" basically serve the same function in most instances: linking one idea to the next, e.g. "I think that I'm crazy about grammar and punctuation." Sorry...my friends call me a grammar and punctuation gorilla for good reason.

I have a couple questions, if you are putting information from a book and an online source, do you put the citations separately or together? And do you put the author's last name before first name or first name then last? If your'e writing 2 authors for 2 things such as from a journal article and book
Why there's no example on the in text online citations? I really needed this!

Thomas Lashley (2 years ago)
Thanks for making this. It is really helpful. Could you also make a video on how to write an aside in an MLA paper. For example: If I said in an essay "It was during the second war(the Rif war), that the Spanish suffered an embarrassing and costly defeat in a small town called Annual."
