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.

2. (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!
