What is quotations in Latex?

  • A quotation is the repetition of one expression as part of another one, particularly when the quoted expression is well-known or explicitly attributed by citation to its original source, and it is indicated by (punctuated with) quotation marks.
  • Quotations are indented and often a little smaller than the surrounding text.
  • There are two different environments to format quotations.
    • \begin{quotation} is used for long quotations
    • \begin{quote} is used for one or more shorter quotations (does not indent the paragraphs)
  • Use the \begin{quote} environment to include a quotation, and make the quotation slightly smaller than the rest of the text (as in the example document).
  • Start with quote.tex.

Accents and More Symbols:

  • There are many symbols that are used in the text that do not appear on the keyboard - accents, unusual symbols (such as a footnote dagger, copyright, etc).
  • Note that there is more than one way to accomplish this. Call your file as accents.tex
  • There are some tricks to typesetting accents. You can leave off the braces and the next character is accented.
  • That is, \'e is the same as \'{e}. Obviously, this doesn't work with accent commands which are letters, such as \c{} or \u{}.
  • Also, accents over dotted letters look bad.
  • Therefore, you can use commands for the letters.
