It really is a good idea do use that. A lot of people think it looks stupid, but things sound like there should be a comma there when it's spoken.

The second one should be using a semi-colon.
We invited the strippers; JFK and Stalin.

Nope, you gotta use a colon. Semi-colons are use to separate independent clauses that are in the same sentence (e.g. "The dog went to sleep, and he woke up an hour later." can be written as "The dog went to sleep; he woke up an hour later."). Colons are used to start a list (e.g. "I have three sisters: Daphne, Rose, and Suzanne.")

My sophomore English teacher taught me well :3

i thought you used a : not a , there
#22 to #19 - dolmandabean ONLINE (08/20/2012) [-]
i thought semi-colon, as it's a start of a list? no?
User avatar #25 to #22 - keiishiyama (08/20/2012) [-]
No, not a semi-colon. That functions as a period would.
User avatar #30 to #25 - rollertoaster (08/20/2012) [-]
Doesn't the semi-colon substitute for a comma and a conjunction?
User avatar #31 to #30 - keiishiyama (08/20/2012) [-]
Yes, but the function of a semi-colon is the same as a conjunction: to lead into something that, on its own, could be a complete sentence.

Like this:
I eat beef. It is tasty.
I like beef, and it is tasty.
I like beef; it is tasty.
User avatar #32 to #31 - rollertoaster (08/20/2012) [-]
Ah. Thank you for clarifying.

i was commenting so it would refresh the items
#14 - bigmanblue (08/19/2012) [-]
both of these sentences are incorrect for what they are displaying
the 1st
"we invited the strippers,JFK and Stalin"
this is correct if you mean that you invited some strippers as well as JFK and Stalin

the 2nd
" we invited the strippers; JFK and Stalin"
this implies you invited 2 strippers called JFK and Stalin

We have a term for people that spectacularly fail at being a grammar nazi: Grammer Jew.

And you are a huge grammar jew that just got chambered.
User avatar #18 to #14 - derpwolf ONLINE (08/19/2012) [-]
That is incorrect. You can only use a semicolon to connect two sentences that would be full sentences on their own. It's used in place of other conjunctions, like 'and' or 'but'.
User avatar #54 - JohnE (08/20/2012) [-]
I was taught you could use either one, but you can't use oxford commas in one paragraph of an essay, then not use it again. You have to be consistent on which form of commas you're using.

An Oxford comma comes at the end of a list before 'and'...
