When does one properly use a semicolon in writing?

Deborah P.
Answer:

A semicolon is used when connecting two sentences or independent clauses. For example: Ann and I are first cousins; our mothers are sisters. Also, a semicolon can be used when connecting two independent clauses with conjunctive adverbs, e.g., however, therefore, thus, otherwise, etc. Example: We can go to the beach on Monday; however, the weather will be cold and cloudy. A semicolon may be used in a serial list. Example: I need the population statistics for the following cities: Tampa, Florida; Flagstaff, Arizona; San Diego, California; Nashville, Tennessee.
