An indirect citation is when the ideas of one author are published in another author’s text but you have not read or accessed the original author’s work. MLA Handbook 9th edition advises using the material from original sources wherever possible. This may mean that you will have to use the citation from the secondary source to find the original source.
To reference an indirect quotation:
(Leonard qtd. in Clark)
Leonard offers this advice about the use of exclamation points "..." (qtd. in Clark 94).
Clark, Roy Peter. The Glamour of Grammar. Little, Brown and Company, 2010.
|Endnote reference type||The reference type you choose will be dependent on the source you indirectly quoted from.|
