Now and then I feel like I need a refresher on how to use certain forms of punctuation. Today it was the semicolon, which I have abused on multiple occasions.
The most feared punctuation on earth.
I did a little Googling and found this awesome guide on The Oatmeal titled “How to use a semicolon“. Not only is this guide really useful and worth bookmarking, it is a reminder of just how awesome The Oatmeal is, generally.
Other terrific grammar guides include:
- How to Use An Apostrophe;
- 10 Words You Need To Stop Misspelling; and
- How to use the word “Literally“.
Even people who write for a living could use a reminder now and then. I certainly do.
