Quotation exhibits characteristics of both use and mention. I argue against the recently popular pragmatic reductions of quotation to mere language use (Recanati 1), and in favor of a truly hybrid account synthesizing and extending Potts (2) and Geurts & Maier (3), using a mention logic and a dynamic semantics with presupposition to establish a context-driven meaning shift. The current paper explores a "quote-breaking" extension to solve the problems posed by non-constituent quotation, and anaphora, ellipsis and quantifier raising across quotation marks.
