Re: Single vs double quotes? (take II)
<< (So is the American English practice of including an entire sentence in
brackets, like this.)>>
That's not inherently wrong in any dialect of English that I'm familiar
with. It's a matter of style, and some style guides certainly consider
longwinded parenthetical statements awkward or wrong. So if you're editing
to follow one of those style guides, then yes, you'd be well-advised to
remove the brackets.
