  1. Great post. These examples are how I was taught years ago and also how I taught when I was a teacher but I was beginning to wonder. Lately, it looks like too many people have forgotten these basics so much to the point that misuse has become the norm, particularly the bit about complete sentence before the colon or each phrase separated by a semicolon able to stand alone. Right on. Thanks for verifying.
