How do you understand this sentence? And how to use it? Is it grammatically correct?
Should you need help, please go to the nearest information booth.
I find it odd, by the way. I use if than should.
Isa pang tanong professor... when is the appropriate use of semicolon [";"] in the written sentence? I seem to be confused kasi. Thanks again.
1) Instead of a period, a semicolon is used to separate sentences or clauses where the conjunction is omitted.
Try to come early and I will tell you all the details.
--> Try to arrive early; I will tell you all the details.
2) When two sentences are joined by a coordinating conjunction (and, but, etc.) and contain one or more commas, use a semicolon between the sentences or clauses.
If you come early, I will tell you all the details; and, you bet, you will know about everything.
3) When you have words like therefore, however, hence, namely, for example, etc. to introduce a sentence, it is better to use a semicolon.
I think; therefore I am.
She didn't come; however, we were still able to finish the project.
4) When you have a list following a sentence, you may use either a semicolon or a comma before the introductory words mentioned in rule number two.
She may prefer to bring different things; for example, books, pens, rulers, erasers and sheets of paper.
She may prefer to bring different things, for example, books, pens, rulers, erasers and sheets of paper.
5) When a sentence or clause contains units or a list with commas, a semicolon is used.
The participants are from Manila, the Philippines; Tokyo, Japan; São Paulo, Brazil; and Mexico City, Mexico.
^^Thank you so much for the detailed explanation, prof.
Ginagamit din ba ang semicolon sa pagsulat ng tagalog sentences?
Professor, thanks for the info on semicolons. I was wondering about them too.
paano po ba matuto ng step by step english Sir? help naman jan thanks
Huy, choker001, welkam sa hiblang ito.
Ang unang dapat mong gawin ay kumuha ka muna ng tinatawag na proficiency test para malaman hindi lamang 'yung level mo pati na rin kung saang bahagi ng gramatika ka mahina at malakas.
'Yang proficiency test ay madalas ibinabahagi ng mga language schools o institutes. Pumunta ka sa isa at madalas ay nagbibigay sila ng libreng assessment.
^In traditional grammar, the use of will and shall, depends on the pronoun involved (I and we vs. you, he, she, et cetera):
To express future state, SHALL is used:
First-person pronouns (I and we): I shall do it; We shall do it.
To express determination, WILL is used:
First-person pronouns (I and we): I wil do it; We will do it.
However,the usage changes for the second-person (you) and third-person (he, she, it, they) pronouns:
To express future state, WILL is used: You will do it; He will do it.
To express determination or certainty, SHALLis used: You shall do it; She shall do it.
^that's more precise. Sorry, I forgot to distinguish between first person and second/third person. thanks for clarifying.
