Sentence Combination Punctuation

Want to improve your writing?  Recent research suggests that the most effective approach might be to focus on combining sentences.

Here are three GOOD ways to combine two sentences:

     I am a semicolon; I link sentences nicely.

     I am a semicolon and a transitional word or phrase; therefore, I am even fancier than just a semicolon. 

     I am a FANBOYS comma, and I can link sentences too.  

Here' the one BAD way:

     I am a comma splice, nobody likes me.  

Or, to show it without all the clutter:

     ;      ๐Ÿ˜Š

     ; however,      ๐Ÿ˜Š +  (Thank you, Josh)

     , and       ๐Ÿ˜Š

     ,      ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

HW 4/10: Use a semicolon!
