How do you use italics for emphasis?

How do you use italics for emphasis?

Italics can emphasize a single word or phrase. For example: “Are you going to eat that?” or “I never said I wanted to go. I said I would consider it.” It’s best to use italics for emphasis sparingly so that they retain their impact.

Can I use quotation marks for emphasis?

Do not use quotation marks to emphasize a word. Just don’t. It’s wrong. The strength of your words should make any formatting unnecessary, but if you really want to emphasize something, use boldface or italics.

Do you use quotations for thoughts?

When you’re quoting a source, use quotation marks to indicate a character’s thoughts, and make it clear in your prose that you are quoting thoughts, not speech: If you’re writing fiction, you may style a character’s thoughts in italics or quotation marks.

Is 1st person singular?
