Punctuation and Formatting


semicolons

Semicolons should be used to separate items in a series when one or more parts of the series already contains commas: I gave copies of the style guide to John Smith, the program director; Jane Doe, the program manager; and Mike Jones, the program advisor. They are also used to connect two related sentences to prevent choppiness of speech. (fix this.)


spaces between sentences

Use only one space between a period and the beginning of a new sentence.
