A semicolon is the ";" mark. It's used whenever one wants to connect thoughts or ideas that are closely related. You can use it whenever you want to link two independent clauses taht have closely connected thoughts. For instance, instead of saying, "Some people write with a typewriter, and others with a pencil." You can say, "Some people write with a typewriter; others with a pencil." The semicolon replaces the conjunction. A conjunction hooks up words and links phrases. Examples of conjunctions are "but", "or", and "and". If you learn by watching videos, Schoolhouse Rock has videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPoBE-E8VOc is a link to watch the conjunction video. If you like to learn by reading, http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/GrammarPunct.html is a good wesbite. It goes more in depth. Hopefully this helps. :)
