Block quotations, longer than 25 words, should be set off in a separate paragraph on a new line without any quotation mark. Quotations within the block quotation should have double quotation marks.
Please use italics for foreign words (especially et al.); use bold text for emphasis.
Any foreign words, titles of books, journals, etc., or any language material need to be distinguished in the running text and should be italized without any quotation mark. Quotations of other works that are not separate publications are to be given in quotation marks.

Quotations. Short quoted sections in the running text should be enclosed in double quotation marks “like this” (the original citation is given in round brackets). Use single quotes for special forms, for quotations within quotations, and for glosses and paraphrases of (foreign) words. Quotations longer than three lines (ca. 40 words) should be given in a separate indented paragraph (5pt.) in italics.
