What are inverted commas?
Inverted commas go before and after direct speech, surrounding what was said.

When to use inverted commas
Use inverted commas to mark the beginning and end of direct speech (a speaker’s words written down exactly as they were spoken).

Inverted comma examples

The conductor shouted, “Sit down!”

“I’m bored,” he complained.

“What’s that noise?” he asked.
“Your sister!” his dad replied.
