  • Another common use of quote marks is that slightly annoying thing people (including me) do called air quotes; that is, making a gesture with their index and middle fingers of both hands curled to indicate that what they are saying is “not to be taken seriously” (see what I did there?)

  • Yeah, I’m no fan of air quotes either, because their intent is often to ridicule. And while we’re on things that annoy, there’s Quote Unquote itself — when a speaker prefaces something with these two words, leaving it to the listener to decide where the closing quote actually goes (and also leaving it to the listener to decipher why quotation marks are necessary!).
