commas within quotation marks and the space within
When I write dialogue, grammarly keeps insisting there be a space between the comma and the end quotation marks. Grammarly has never called me on this before. An example follows.
"Calm yourself," Fred said in a soothing voice. "The dog's bark is bigger than his bite." There is no space after the comma in the beginning dialogue. Yet grammarly suggests a space after the comma. Correction: "Calm yourself, " Fred said. I think in this case grammarly is wrong. It was just recently that this type of punctuation has been corrected. I have not had this problem before today. Is there a glitch in the system?
