Question:

When do I use a semicolon?

Ricky C.
Answer:

A semicolon is most commonly used to connect two related independent clauses. An independent clause is an idea that can stand alone as a complete sentence. You will generally see semicolons used for comparisons or contrasts. For Example: John loves Jill; however, Jill loves Jim.

Question:

What does the Shakespeare's "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day (Sonnet 18)" mean?

Ricky C.
Answer:

Sonnets generally focus on a person or thing of interest. Shakespeare is comparing his love to a summer day, but tells her she is so much better. He notices that the ever-changing weather of summer creates destruction and the nature will die. However, the volta (or turn) of the sonnet tells his lover that because of the poem, she will live forever.

Question:

What is the difference between "good" and "well"?

Ricky C.
Answer:

"Good" is an adjective, and an adjective describes a noun. For example: I did a GOOD job. "Well" is an adverb, and an adverb describes a verb. Generally adverbs have the suffix -ly, but well is irregular. For Example: I did a job WELL done. If you are looking to describe a noun (person/place/thing), use good. If you are looking to describe a verb (an action), use well.
