Every semicolon example, with out fail can be replaced with a . and often with a conjunction.

  • I use semicolons all the time in my writing. They are a useful grammatical tool.
  • I use semicolons all the time in my writing; they are a useful grammatical tool.
  • I use semicolons all the time in my writing because they are a useful grammatical tool.


The reason to pick one over the other? IMO, Style.
