Semicolon

The semicolon ( ; ) is used to

a) join two or more independent or main clauses that are not linked by a coordinating conjunction (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so). It is used when the two clauses are closely related.

    Examples:
    Summer is my favorite season; I love the hot weather.
    Summer is my favorite season; however, even I donít always love the heat.

b) separate items in a series when the items are long and contain commas.

    Example: The four finalists were Ms. Oregon, the brunette in the blue dress; Ms. New Jersey, the blonde in the red dress; Ms. Texas, the redhead in the cowboy hat; and Ms. Wisconsin, the raven-tressed woman in the cheese outfit.
