Question about in-text citations in MLA format?

Question about in-text citations in MLA format? Topic: In cite citations for mla papers
May 25, 2019 / By Jorie
Question: If you use two seperate quotes from the same book in the same paragraph how would you put a citation for that? Ex: "Quote one here" (citation). blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. blah blah blah blah. blah blah blah blah blah "Quote two here" (citation). Would I need to site the author and page number both times or just site the author and page number in one and the page number in the other or something else?

If the title of the source is not include in the paragraph you must put it in the citation along with the author and pg #. If you DO have the author name and title in the paragraph you must put the author and page number for the first citation for that author after that if you have a citation from an author you have already cited and is also the same source you can just put in the page number if you haven't done a diffrent citaton for another author or source that is in between them. So ex. (Frye,Double Vison 85) if title and author not in the rest of the paper. (Double Vison 85) if the author is already stated somewhere else and once or if you haven't done a citaton to this author before and just page number,(85) if you have alredy done one citation with the authors name and is t has not been followed by a citation with another authors name. If you have questions at all just ask.

Before you go into the technical and format issue consider this: (Authentic work usually comes with full details) otherwise, it's not reliable source. Try to make sure that to what extent your school procedures allow you to use unpublished work. In the internet you can easily find lots of posts that are not officially published. In other words they just being posted by the authors. Usually published works have to have an agent like unis or authentic publishers. I have had the same situation recently. My advice to you is to check with your lecturer or teacher specially if you're a postgraduate student. They will tell you how to deal with this kind of papers. Some unis or colleges won't recognize them. Dont let these two posts downgrade your paper, find out an alternatives and Good luck.

You could look at www.apastyle.org. Actual articles without authors sound unlikely - are you sure they weren't there somewhere?

Try this website http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ I discovered this website during my junior year in my bachelors degree program, unfortunately I didn't know about it sooner. My English professor told our class about the site. Basically it is a wealth of info on how to cite and almost every question regarding MLA should be answered with it. Good luck. MLA is HUGE in college so if you are going to college get the general idea of it. APA is another format you may want to familiarize yourself with depending on what you want to do. Typically with websites I will just put the website name as the citation so after the sentence I would put (Website Name). You don't really have to worry about page numbers as far as I am aware.

RE: How do you do an in-text citation of a website in MLA format? Title says it all, really. I have a research paper due, and my English teacher never really went over how to do an in-text citation for a website. I know I need to cite it in someway, and I really need help. Thanks to all who answer :)
