Excuse me but that's not quite right..

If you are going to make fun of grammar at least get it right...

 The semicolon or semi-colon (;) is a punctuation mark that separates major sentence elements. A semicolon can be used between two closely related independent clauses, provided they are not already joined by a coordinating conjunction.


  1. My problem with grammar was that i knew when something sounded correct and when it did not, and i could tell you what to do to fix it, but i couldn't always remember the rule that told why!

  2. I know what you mean. I think she had to get the bit in about "archaic" though, don't you? :)

  3. Thanks John, I will try and remember. I scatter them around for variety; I'll try and remember when to use them.

  4. Thank you CJ. As a frequent user of colons and semicolons I despair..

  5. I try to avoid having contact with all colons:)
