What's with the single closing quotation mark?
1

In English, quotation marks usually occur in pairs enclosing speech, a quotation, or some such thing. A single opening quotation mark is sometimes used where speech runs across multiple paragraphs, at the start of each new paragraph.  Then an opening and closing pair is used for the final paragraph to indicate the end of the quote; but a single closing quotation mark is a thing I've never seen before...
