Question:

When does someone use a semicolon? Write an example sentence and explain.

Maggie H.
Answer:

I have a big test tomorrow; I can't go out tonight. In this example, the semicolon combines two independent clauses. If the semicolon was replaced with a period, the clauses would still make sense.

Identify one of the main themes in Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s novel, "Mother Night."

Maggie H.
Answer:

One theme may be the question of identity. Campbell works as an American spy during WWII, going deep under cover as a Nazi. By the end, the reader and Campbell himself wonders if you can keep your two selves separate, or if the evil inside you was there all along.

Question:

Find and identify the grammatical error in the following sentence: My family cooks together almost every night, then we eat what we made together.

Maggie H.
Answer:

Comma Splice; two independent clauses, separated by a comma. It would be better to have these as two separate sentences. "My family cooks together almost every night. Then, we eat what we made together."
