Consider, for example, that the following sentence is from an external source and that I desire to quote it in my own work (please pay attention to the structure of the sentence, not its ambiguous or odd content):
A and B originate from X in a peculiar way and nobody regards them as Y.
In light of the rules of the Chicago Manual of Style, is it permissible to quote the text in the first way (see below), or must I do it the second way?
- According to my source, A "originate[s] from X in a peculiar way and nobody regards [it] as Y."
- According to my source, A originates "from X in a peculiar way and nobody regards" it "as Y."
This source suggests that the things that I wish to do are permissible in MLA style, and I wonder if the same is permissible in Chicago style.
