MHRA referencing question watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm trying to get to grips with footnoting but I'm unsure when it comes to page numbers, I've looked at both my course study guide and an official MHRA pdf, but there doesn't seem to be any explanation on how you footnote page numbers if you use, just as an example, pages 76, 84, and 109 in a book?

    Everything seems to suggest it would be written as "pp. 76-109", but isn't that incorrect? I wouldn't have used every page in between those two pages in my work, yet isn't that what writing it like that suggests? Is there not a way, in keeping with the MHRA referencing rules, to show you have referenced a number of pages on their own and not every page in between the lowest page number and the highest? So something like "pp. 76, 84, 109"?
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
