Remember to use period, semicolons, and commas appropriately with the following :

 

  1. (between two clauses joined by semicolon):

 

A Clockwork Orange is a thought-provoking film; however, it digressed from the novel too much.   “however” here starts a new clause following the semicolon.

 

  1. (between two separate sentences)

     

 A Clockwork Orange is an intriguing book.    I feel, however, the film is even better. 

(Note the use of two commas because the transitional interrupts a sentence.)

 

3.(between two paragraphs)

 

Burgess’ novel was way ahead of its time. ← (consider this the end of a paragraph)

Furthermore, Kubrick’s depiction of a future culture saturated with sexual images was prescient.  “Furthermore” starts a new sentence or new paragraph.

 

¶  shows where a new paragraph starts.  You do not actually draw the symbol in!
