Hi everyone. It is a hot one today! About 30 degrees. I have been safely inside, out of the heat, drinking iced coffee with my students.
Last week I asked you about the use of COLONS and SEMI-COLONS. Can you uses them?
The colon is used mainly to introduce a list.
eg. You will need to prepare a few things for the party tomorrow: food, drinks and entertainment for all the guests.
Semi-colons are used to join two independent clauses, that is two sentences.
eg. I call it football; Yoshi calls it American football.
I call it soccer; Yoshi calls it football.
Now for this week’s point!!!
Which is correct:
I was amused by the play.
