What is the difference between a direct quotation and an embedded quotation?
There might not be any difference at all... you are talking about a type of quotation (direct or paraphrased usually), and the way the quotation is presented (block or embedded usually). You could embed a direct quotation into your text, as in Sally cried "GET AWAY from me you idiot monster" and ran as quickly as she could, with the monster on her heels. That is a direct quotation of Sally, and it is embedded in the text, not taken out and put on a separate line or in a block quotation. An inderect or paraphrased quotation would be more like Sally, hilariously, insulted the monster's intelligence as she ran. That is a paraphrase of what Sally actually said. In a research paper, both kinds of quotations need to have citations, but this kind is in my own words, and doesn't directly quote Sally at all... just indirectly, with a paraphrase. The quotation, however, is still embedded in the text and on the same line as everything else. For a non-embedded quotation, in a normal paper you would take it out as a block quotation: GET AWAY from me you idiot monster! Your Mother was Grendel and your Father was Cookie Monster. You're the most dumb, idiotic, freaky, slimy, joke of a monster that I have ever seen! Stop chasing me! I am just trying to bring you your stupid dinner! Stop! You IDIOT! In this sort of a quotation, the entire quotation is removed from the other text and indented together (a block quotation). In published materials, sometimes quotations will be put into separate text boxes and the font size will be enlarged... same idea. The quotation isn't embedded into the text anymore, but is instead separated and more attention is called to it.

Asked in Academic Writing
How is a direct quotation indicated in a text?
A direct quotation is indicated by the use of quotation marks. It looks like this: the other day, Fred told me "I am tired of working for the company". If I did not wish to quote Fred, but merely wanted to paraphrase him, I could say, the other day Fred told me that he didn't want to continue working for the company.
