When?

When do I use a semicolon?

  • Use a semicolon when you want to form a bond between two statements that are related.
    • Ex: It was below zero on a cold winter day; Squiggly wondered if he would freeze to death.
  • Don’tuse a semicolon with coordinating conjunctions (and, or, but). Use a comma in this case.
    • Ex: It was 10 below zero on a cold winter day, andSquiggly wondered if he would freeze to death.
slide20

When? Continued…

When do I use a semicolon?

  • Use it as a SUPER comma!
    • Ex: This week's book winners are Herbie in Milligan College, Tennessee; Matt in Irvine, California; and Jan in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
    • Because each item in the list requires a comma to separate the city from the state, you have to use a semicolon to separate the items themselves.
