When would you use a semicolon examples?

Asked by Amirah Salgado

Semicolons Separate Clauses

Here’s an example: I have a big test tomorrow; I can’t go out tonight. The two clauses in that sentence are separated by a semicolon and could be sentences on their own if you put a period between them instead: I have a big test tomorrow.
