「Semicolon」についての他の質問

Q: ‎How does semicolon thing work?
Isn't "are" needed before "to"?
A: A semicolon separares two independent clauses. An independent clause is something that could be a complete sentence on its own.

In this case, "are" is left out, so you could argue that it's no longer an independent clause. The verb is sometimes left out in the second clause of a sentence if the first part already used the same verb. You can see it in the saying "To err is human. To forgive (is) divine."

Q: Why do We use semicolon here in the following sentences.
1.Unfortunately,Wang couldn't come;and his absence made things difficult for us?
2.Before He came,we had expected him to help us;but when He was with us ,he didn't do much.
A: A semicolon separates two independent phrases; they are less divided than if you used a full stop. I don't like the use of 'and' in your first example as it's a conjunction and means that you don't need the semicolon.. Also, that sentence isn't a question. The same applies to 'but' in the second example as applies to 'and' in the first.
