See, quotation marks, when “applied to a group of words”, give that group of words a “different” tone. “Not necessarily” a bad thing, of course, but, there’s a “better” way to demonstrate that you want to denote something as important. For instance, it’s imperative that one understands the two are not the “same” thing. Each method calls up a different “voice” within the reader, and italics seems to act as a reinforcing agent.
So, please, don’t use quotation marks when you really need to slant the letters a tad. It makes just that much difference. At the same time, I really hope I’m not the “only” one bothered by this.
Let Using Quotation Marks Instead Of Italics For Emphasis Die
