In Inverted Commas


A phrase that indicates the phrase you’re using to describe something is being used with sarcasm.

For Example:

You might say, “Bill thinks one day he’s going to ‘save the company’ in inverted commas.” What you’re implying is that you don’t believe Bill genuinely intends to save the company.
