Welcome to Grammar Lesson Monday!
This continuous series will address many common grammar mistakes made in the media and that I've seen more than once. I strive to make the world a better place with good grammar.
Today, we will learn about using a semicolon with however.
Semicolons are difficult. But here is a very specific way to use one...with however.
If you are connecting however between two complete sentences, then you need a semicolon:
I love the show Bunheads; however, it might be cancelled because its lack of interest.
You don't use the semicolon with however if it it interrupting the sentence:
That finale on Bunheads, however, could have generated more interest.
That's it for today. Celebrate good grammar!
