I answer your question for APA. Psychological papers are very rigidly formatted, so possibly you have more leeway when following MLA, but I would suspect that the basics still apply. To answer your question, we must first understand what the purpose of the headings is. To understand that, let's take a step back and look at the paper's title. The APA Manual ...

Definitely - not just a phrase but at least a paragraph discussing the language, possibly detailing some characteristic points of it, early on. Also note - they aren't necessarily errors. That's a dialect, and as long as the spelling and grammar is true to that dialect, it's not erroneous; it just isn't Standard English. Think of it as quotations in a ...

In MLA citation, the author is put before the website. Lastname, Firstname. "Title." Website Title (Italics). Publisher, Date Month Year of publication. Web. Date month year of access. If there is no author, just omit the author and begin the citation with "Title.

Consider how your reader will use the book. In an academic work (which this is not), readers: are likely to already be familiar with the cited works (they're also researchers in this field, after all) will rely on the works you cite to evaluate your work (they care about those citations) read lots of such articles and welcome a consistent style ...

It depends on what is in between quote x from Ferguson and y quote from Ferguson. If there is no quotes in between x and y then you can just refer the page number and if there is a quote in between you need to refer to the source again. Also, if there is no sentences between x and y you can just refer to the source after y. However, I personally tend to stay ...

The following is quoted from Harvard Guide to Using Sources When you are citing an edition of a book other than the first edition, you should indicate the edition. In both MLA and APA styles, you should identify the edition you are citing by year or number (if either is available), or by name (if the edition is listed as "revised" or "abridged"). ...

From what I remember, the standard way to separate two citations like this would be to include the year in the citation. EG: "This is quote one" ("Alternative Energy" 2007), and "this is quote two" ("Alternative Energy" 2015). I cannot cite a source for this, though, as I have not used MLA in years and do not have a copy of the handbook available.

You (probably) don't. It is unlikely that a film made in the 1950s saw its first release on YouTube. You wouldn't cite an ebook as published on some torrent site, you wouldn't cite music as published on some file sharing site, and similarly you would not (usually) cite a film as being published on a video sharing site such as YouTube. You would give ...

According to this Pitts Theology Library Research Guide, The two styles most commonly used in theology are SBL and Chicago style. It is important to note that SBL style suggests that users check the Chicago Manual if a question is not specifically answered in the SBL Handbook.

Most Modern Christian works use footnotes except for scripture which is always cited inline. Early works which predate modern citation styles use the author's name or the common identifier for a work when an author was known for more than one work, as many works had no titles, page numbers or publishers in a narrative citation style (the citation, what there ...

I don't think this is grammatically correct for anything. Is "Religion" the title, and (I'm sure you've all heard of this before). a subtitle? If so, I think it's a weird subtitle, and it's weird to put your subtitle in parentheses. If this is the body of your essay, then you have the serious problem that "Religion" (I'm sure you've all heard of this ...

If your source of information was the YouTube video, then you cite the YouTube video. If you're using some specific style guide -- MLA or APA or whatever -- follow their format for citing a web site. If not, make up something consistent with what you're using for paper sources.

You would need to cite the fact that it's a new edition, purely because the page numbers might be different to the old edition. So that your reader can find the exact citation using your reference, you should always be as specific about which edition you're using as you can be. From the OWL at Purdue (my go-to site for MLA): A Subsequent Edition ...

When a subsequent quotation is from the same work as the previous one, a page number is enough: In Bob Foo's novel Living the Internet Life, the protagonist is posting comments on websites. His first comment is met with enthusiastic upvoting (34). The protagonist is happy and decides to post more comments (38).
