THE WRITER'S HANDBOOK USING SEMICOLONS Semicolons help you connect closely related ideas when a style mark stronger than a comma is needed. By using semicolons effectively, you can make your writing sound more sophisticated.
A handout that explains 7 uses of colons and 5 rules of semicolons with examples. Teachers can use this cheat sheet as a ready reckoner to remind the learners on the uses and rules of colons and semicolons.
