Revising semicolons & colons


If youve used a semicolon, make sure you have a complete sentence
before and after
If youve used a colon, make sure you have a complete sentence
before or after
(on the side opposite the colon, you need a list or another
complete sentence)

Revising - commas
Highlight all FANBOYS
If there is a complete sentence before and after the
FANBOYS, place a comma before the FANBOYS
Read each sentence. Look for extra information. Place
commas around the extra information.
Which usually signifies extra information
That usually signifies essential information
Is there a beginning of a sentence that can be placed at the
end of the sentence? If so, place a comma after that
moveable part of the sentence (inverted sentence).
