Hi, this is my first time posting. I usually can find the solution online but I've gotten some mixed messages from a few people in person.
I understand semicolons when used in the following case
[sentence/clause] ; [more description]
i.e. I ate pizza; it was pepperoni.
But can you use it to separate 1. [a term]; [definition] 2. [a premise]; [a conclusion] 3. [a conclusion]; [logical deduction]
I dislike using semicolons since they are usually unnecessary and glare at you when used where a comma would be just as good. But these cases seem like good reasons to use semicolons (if they work) for clarity and efficiency.
Thanks in advance for answering.
