Colons versus semi-colons!

Revision:

Independent clause is a main clause – it needs nothing else to help it make sense. 

Dependent clause is a clause that relies on the main clause for it to make sense (in the same way that a subordinate clause does.)

Colons:

1) You can use a colon after a main clause.  After the colon you would have a word or dependent clause that refers back or expands the main clause.

e.g. Workhouse teachers told the children one thing: to behave or receive a punishment.

2) You can use a colon after an independent clause to introduce a list.

Semi-colon:

1) You can use a semi-colon to link 2 independent clauses. The first clause usually answers a ‘what question’ and the second answers a ‘why question’.

e.g. Victorian children were often punished in school; perceived wrong-doings by teachers would result in a child being caned. 

2) You can also use a semi-colon to separate detailed items in a list.
