Does anyone else...

Posted 17 February 2007 - 09:27 AM

Does anyone else (at least sometimes) end their sentences with a ; ?

I was reading one of my posts, and I didn't even realize I'd done it then... heh but it happens all the time.

Anyone?

I sometimes end my sentences with a little dance - a kind of derivative jig.

Technically, it isn't a sentence if it ends with a ";". The words before it would be considered to have an idea, but it isn't completely a sentence. FYI.

Never use it. Very deceitful. More of ellipsis and comma.

I noticed that a lot of the new members from other countries love to put a shit load of ...................................................'s between words and such.

I'm with Chris on this, I have a habit of using too many commas. , ,,,, , ,

there are 3 uses for a semicolon...

1) joining an independent clause in a compound sentence that does not have a coordinating conjunction

Today I went to the zoo; i want to go again tomorrow.

2) before adverbial conjunctions when joining simple sentences.

I was to tired to do anything; therefor, we are going out tonight.

3) to separate items in a series when the items already contain commas.

My favorite people online are Sloth, he is a riot; Skyhawk, the webmaster; and Cookie Mobster, he is so sexy.


So use them and use them well.

I enjoy the fact that in a grammar lesson you made one of the most common mistakes:

[quote]

[quote]

to != too


There is some literary device that applies here, probably alliteration.
