Commas- just a refresher. A comma goes between two sentences connected with a conjunction “ and, but, or, either, because ”. A comma goes between each piece of a list longer than 2. Red, white, and blue. A comma goes after an introductory clause: Like all 11 year olds, my son likes to play outside. A comma goes before a quotation: He said, “ I want it to snow! ” A comma separates a word/clause/sentence segment that is inserted for detail but not part of main sentence (an interrupter): The game, the final one of the season, began at 2 o ’ clock.
Apostrophe- you’d be surprised how many errors I find in your papers. The apostrophe is used in two situations: to show a possession and to combine two words- contractions- “can’t, don’t, wouldn’t.” Possession: That is Brian ’ s book. You do not use an apostrophe for possessive pronouns. That is her book. That book is hers. The other exception is the word it. If it owns the object you do not use an apostrophe. Its purpose was to inform not to entertain.
Semicolons A semi colon can be complicated, but if you remember one BIG rule, you should be able to correctly use them. A semi-colon can be replaced by a period. A semi-colon connects two complete sentences in order to make the connection between them stronger. A semi-colon is not followed by a conjunction. –Romeo and Juliet were in love; however, the story itself was not a love story. –It was raining cats and dogs outside; I stayed inside.
Colon A colon is used to highlight a piece of text: its job is to bring attention to the next piece of information. There is usually a complete sentence leading to a colon. –I have three favorite vacation spots in the United States: Florida, Virginia, and Vermont.
Dash Think of a dash as a stronger comma to set off an interrupter- it adds emphasis. –“They shout - from public platforms in printed pages, through the microphones - that it is futile to oppose the ‘wave of the future.’”
