    A semi-colon serves to punctuate two related bodies of thought without using a period.

    Give an example:

    "Yesterday, we thought grandma died; but we later found that she only had another doodoo blackout."

    I hope my example doesn't violate the zero-tolerance policy.

    Come on Poser-Doo, I see you... pretending you got a sliver
    But you're not fooling me, cause I can see, the way you shake and shiver.

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    Mmm... It's not grammatically incorrect to use a transitional phrase like that. You're correct in that a transitional phrase isn't needed.
