The semi colon is a delightful little piece of punctuation but completely superfluous; it can usually be replaced perfectly well by a full stop (period if you are Trans-Atlantically challenged) and always by some alternative form of punctuation or conjunction.

Nazis (without an apostrophe) is the proper plural.
Damn phone dictionary! Probably written by a Yank

Semicolons are sometimes thought to be written as two words; however, this is definitely not the case.

I always use semicolons; they take up less space than full ones.
