When to Italicize:
Sound words: “Listen!” Thump. “Did you hear that?”
Foreign words: “Yes, I’ll have some wine. Ein bisschen,” said Grandma. But Grandpa always filled the glass.
Words as words: When you write the word embarrassed, remember the two r’s and two s’s
Thoughts: That guy is really creepy, she thought.
For emphasis: I didn’t say you should go. I said he should go.
