punctuation template

Here's a handy template:

independent clause.  independent clause.  (A period separates two independent clauses.)

independent clause; independent clause.  (A semi-colon connects two related independent clauses.)

independent clause, coordinating conjunction independent clause.  (A comma plus coordinating conjunction--for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so--connects two related independent clauses.)

independent clause:  anything.  (A colon connects AND separates an independent clause that sets up material from whatever follows.)
