Not many people know how to use a semi-colon; that's why you never see them.

Correction: "You're gay."

(btw, OP: do quotation marks go after the sentence punctuation or before it. The Merriam-Webster dictionary points out that the closing quotation mark always follows the punctuation at the end of the sentence. Personally, I swing both ways. cool2 What is your opinion on the matter?)

We have an early leader in the grammar sweepstakes! I too am flexible in these matters of quotation marks.

Re: The impeccable grammar thread

 Quoting: Bullfrog


I am a huge fan of semi-colons. They are useful for separating a list of words or phrases. Also, they can be used in the place of a period or a conjunction when two sentences are closely related to each other.

While on this subject, please allow me to vent:

The correct way to use the word "however" in many instances is like this:

"The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain; however, it also rains in Denmark."

Although it may look awkward, ending it with the closing punctuation within the quotation is the proper method.
