Mla Format Citation Question

Question about MLA format (in text citations)?

For Print sources like books, magazines, scholarly journal articles, and newspapers, provide a signal word or phrase (usually the author’s last name) and a page number. If you provide the signal word/phrase in the sentence, you do not need to include it in the parenthetical citation:

Human beings have been described by Kenneth Burke as "symbol-using animals" (3). Human beings have been described as "symbol-using animals" (Burke 3).

These examples must correspond to an entry that begins with Burke, which will be the first thing that appears on the left-hand margin of an entry in the Works Cited:

Burke, Kenneth. Language as Symbolic Action: Essays on Life, Literature, and Method. Berkeley: U of California P, 1966. Print.

So with that I would say C) is the correct one. :)

Hope this helps! :)

MLA Formatting Question?

In-text citations for electronic sources are treated in most respects as print texts are. The only real difference occurs because electronic texts do not have page numbers (unless the source is in PDF format or otherwise mimics a print version of the source). Sometimes, numbered paragraphs appear on an electronic source. In such cases, use paragraph numbers instead of page numbers. The paragraph number should appear in your citation following the abbreviation par. If an electronic source includes section numbers or screen numbers, use those numbers after the word section or screen. Most often, however, the source will have no paragraph, section, or screen numbers. In such instances, include no number in the parentheses, as shown below:

The Collaborative Virtual Workspace (CVW) prototype is being used by

the Defense Department for crisis management (Davidson and Deus).

MLA format citation question?

I've researched MLA format but I can't seem to find the answer to this question. I'm writing an essay and I need to quote a website in my paragraph. My sentence looks like this:

One reason is that they believe marriage is for procreation (Source Here).

I know the source goes inside the parentheses, but do I put the title of the entire website, or the title of the article from that website there? HELP!!!

MLA format citation!?!?!?

Cite only the web site you used. That was your source. Think of this analogy: you consulted a textbook as part of your research. At the back of this textbook are 7 pages of references that the book's authors consulted as they were writing the book or quoted within the book. Would you cite the textbook or the textbook plus the 7 pages of references?

In Text Citation MLA format?

Generally, if there is no author, you should use the title of the document. In-text citations are a way to make it easier for a reader to find the full citation in the Works Cited page(s). Therefore, you need to include information in an in-text citation which will make it easy for a reader to find the full citation entry at the end of the essay.
