英文寫作中,分號『;』和冒號『:』如何運用比較恰當

後面接著的字要大寫嗎?

例如 :

I have sex with her; my brother dose as well. 中間的m要大寫嗎?

    semicolon (;) is used to connect two independent clauses

    把兩個可以自己獨立的句子(independent clause)連起來用的

    例句

    I like cake; she also likes cake.

    如何知道是 independent clause? 把兩部分分開為兩個句子, 文法上沒錯的話就沒問題

    I like cake.

    She also likes cake.

    像 I like cake; but she doesn't. 這樣是錯誤的 (要用 comma)

    I like cake. << 可以自己當一個獨立的句子

    But she doesn't. << 不可以自己當一個句子 (dependent clause) 因為讀者會想 "she doesn't what?"

    colon: (:) is used to list things, give a definition, or seperation of title and sub-title

    如果有個清單, 想要給字義, 或者是分開標題與副標題

    例句

    清單

    I like the following foods: pizza, pasta, cake, and ice cream.

    字義

    A dictionary is defined as: "a reference book containing an alphabetical list of words, with information given for each word, usually including meaning, pronunciation, and etymology" (Dictionary.com)

    標題:副標題

    semicolon 後除非是要大寫的字 (名字, 地名等) 不然都是小寫
