This chapter examines the phenomenon of omitted quotation marks (D11). Some theorists hold that quotation marks (or any other linguistic indicator) are unrequired for quotation. The data that allegedly support this claim are considered. It is argued that the data marshaled in support of the Quotation Without Quotation Marks thesis are not only irrelevant to traditional theories of quotation; there are plenty of strategies traditional theories can use to accommodate it.
