How do you use a semicolon

Report as

It's a very useful little squiggle we use to break up over-long sentences. It's used in much the same way we use a dash. It's not a good idea to overuse them -- they can make reading very difficult. If I had a sentence that needed more than one I'd break it up and use two sentences.
