The semicolon is used to indicate a separate clause in a sentence. It separates this new clause from the rest of the sentence. For example...
"I'm having a day off work today; the first in two weeks!" The semicolon splits these two stand alone clauses in this sentence.
What's a clause you may ask. Well, it is any group of words that make grammatical sense, usually containing a noun, a verb and an object.
Do yous use a semicolon when separating lists?
I can give you several sentences.You use a semicolon to separate two clauses.A semicolon is like a comma with a period on top of it.You need to learn how to use the semicolon properly.
Well, according to what I learned when I was in Algebra I, you should never have to use a semicolon.
Example:printf ("There is one semicolon; in this string");printf ("There is no semicolon in this string");
The semicolon is the statement terminator. It is defined in the language as such.
Yes, you can. Semicolon can be used almost in any part of program.
no, if you do you should have used a comma
Well, as long as such isn not the beginning of a list of things, such would not have a semicolon in front of it.
No, but you may be able to use a semicolon. A semicolon and a conjunctive adverb can sometimes take the place of a subordinating conjunction.
A gerund is a verb with the -ing suffix, often turning it from a verb into the subject of a sentence. It is grammatically correct to use one after a semicolon as long as the clause after the semicolon is still independent, that is, it can still stand alone as a separate sentence.
You use a semicolon
I wouldn't use a semicolon in a conditional (if) sentence. Semicolons can join two independent clauses without a conjunction. The "if" clause in a conditional sentence is dependent, not independent.
Use it to separate closely related independentclauses.
Example-They use they following things:pens, pencils, and markers
when you are continuing a sentence of details
When using a semicolon you put one space after the semicolon.
Typically, the semicolon implies " and" and therefore using and after a semicolon is redundant.
Yes, that is one of the most common uses of a semicolon. If there is a conjunction joining the clauses, however, you should use a comma instead of a semicolon.
It should be written like this: "Joe watered the garden; however, the plants did not grow". Or you could eliminate the semicolon altogether and use a comma as in: "Joe watered the garden, but the plants did not grow."B.This sentences uses a semicolon; the semicolon joins two complete sentences.
In C (and C++ and Java), the semicolon is used to mark the end of a statement. It is also used the separate the expressions in a for loop.
Use a semicolon when you link two independent clauses with no connecting words. You can also use a semicolon when you join two independent clauses together with one of the following conjunctive adverbs (adverbs that join independent clauses): however, moreover, therefore, consequently, otherwise, nevertheless, thus, etc.
NO only colons can do that
