Brynn from Ohio asks...
If you are putting dialogue in a paper, say for instance, "John will you answer the phone," she asked. Is the "she" capitalized?
Anne answers...
No, in that sentence "she" is not capitalized. And there are also some other things to consider. First, there should be a comma after John and a question mark inside the quotation marks where the comma is. The corrected version looks like this: "John, will you answer the phone?" she asked.
