@tanguatlay,
When the quotation marks appear before the quoted text, they are "opening inverted commas" and when they indicate the end of the quoted text they are "closing inverted commas".

@hightor,
Many thanks, hightor!

1. Can "opening inverted commas" be called "opening quotation marks"?
2. And "closing inverted commas" be called "closing quotation marks"?
3. Is "inverted commas" a British English term?
4. And is "quotation marks" an American English term?
