    'Simple' is a complete sentence, so the two sentences need to be divided by a conjunction (which wouldn't make sense in our example), a semi-colon, or a period.

    Ah. I think I usually use a conjunction or a period, because I don't understand semicolons well. It's good to know that my sentences haven't been error-ridden all this time. I would have been quite embarrassed if they had been.

    Now, can anyone tell me whether my hyphenation of the above sentence was correct, or if I should have used a space instead?

    I'm not sure about semi-colon being hyphenated..

    Your grammar is excellent; don't worry about it.

    I meant in the case of "error-ridden." I'm sure semicolon is one word, because I've seen it spelled in the dictionary that way.

    Error-ridden is for sure a hyphenated term.

    Welcome, Evan! What was the horrible name you changed? It can't be that horrible, can it!
    I have always thought it would be neat to change my name to Kristiana or Kristina (so pretty!)
