Question:

When do I use the semi-colon?

Inactive
David I.
Answer:

The semicolon is my second favorite punctuation mark; the first is the interobang, but that is no longer used. The above sentence is an example of using a semicolon to join two independent clauses (complete sentences) together without the use of a conjunction. It is a great way to vary sentence structure; however, you have to make sure the two complete sentence go together. That last sentence shows the semicolon used with a conjunctive adverb, in this caser "however," to join two independent clauses as well. Finally, use a semicolon when making a list of things that already have commas in them.

Answer:

The best thing to do is to get as close to the primary source as possible. This could be a published study or a historical document. It is best to avoid headlines as they do not provide the entire picture.
