A question regarding commas, quotation marks, ending mark, etc.
In (American) English, this sentence would be: They say, "No." A comma before first quote and a period inside before ending quote.
In German would it be the same? Sie sagen, 《Nein.》
(I can't get the quote marks smaller even with the German keyboard... sigh.) Therefore, smaller quote marks, but the real question is about comma placement, quote marks placement and end of sentence period placement. Is the period inside or out quote marks? Is there a comma before first quote mark?
If I'm confusing you, I apologize!
if you are using ihr plural do you not use the conjugation of wir/sie
No, because ihr is not wir and it is not sie.
ihr verb forms end in -t; wir and sie verb forms end in -en.
German doesn't have "a plural verb form" any more than English has "a singular verb form" -- you might as well ask why "If you are using 'I' singular do you not use the conjugation of 'he/she/it' (singular)? Ex. ich sage --> I says."
Likely because it uses the verb sagen which is introduced in the dative unit as it is often used with a dative object.

Even "grammar" units often also introduce new vocabulary and then practise that vocabulary, even in situations where that grammar point might not be used.
