Default Italics


Italics

Certain groups and classes (names and titles), foreign words or phrases, or words for specific reference are italicized.

I've seen the Spirit of St. Louis up close on a field trip. (name of airplane)
You wouldn't believe the deja-vu I've been having lately! (foreign word)
Never, ever, over-italicize your work. Use italics sparingly. (emphasis)
