Writing EXTENSION TASK: to use a semi-colon and colon in a list
Here is a video tutorial – How to use a semi colon in a list:
The whole point of using a semi colon in a list is to make the different parts of the list obvious.
For example (use a comma for a list):
I went to the supermarket to buy: lemons, bread, milk and cheese.
Here the list is very simple.
An example where you would use a semi-colon:
I went to the supermarket and bought: six juicy lemons from Spain; some thick, crusty bread; a carton of cow’s milk and a block of cheese.
Here is an another example:
Elephants are large, grey, big-eared animals.
Semi-colons is needed:
Elephants are: one of the largest animals in the world; have thick, grey skin; usually live in hotter countries and some have tusks.
Choose a subject of your choice and write some sentences using a semi colon.
