Hi, I'm Heather Kamins for About.com, and I'm here to talk to you about how to use a semicolon.A semicolon is halfway between a comma and a period in the amount of the pause it provides. You can use it to connect two complete sentences, such as I love reading; I go to the library every week to get books.If you're using a conjunction such as and or but to combine the two sentences into a single sentence, you would not use a semicolon in that case. Also, be careful not to overuse semicolons because they stand out more in your writing.One other use of the semicolon is in a series with internal punctuation - so if you have a list of items, and one of those items has multiple items. So for example, you could say, he loves hiking; going to rock, jazz and classical concerts; and reading.Thanks for watching. To learn more, visit us on the web at About.com.
