Q. A question recently came up in an English class: how many semicolons can you use in one sentence? We discussed how many you should use, but we were still curious whether or not there is an official limit to how many you can use and still be grammatically correct. What’s your answer?
A. You can use an infinite number of semicolons and still be grammatically correct. (Another reminder that good grammar does not equal good writing.)
