RE: Apostrophe Help!
True, but the point of punctuation is to make your writing understood by the audience. If you are writing for an American audience and using British standards of punctuation, you are actually better off using no punctuation at all.

The Spanish speaking nations use upside down question marks before question sentences and rightside up ones after. But in an English composition, we don't do this if we insert a colloquial Spanish question in the narrative. Our tradition is to punctuate as we would an English question but to italicize the lettering. ¿qué pa·sa?
