    semicolon question

    I have a question regarding this sentence.

    ****I admit that I’m not happy with the latest writing on Novelr. I feel that it’s starting to become too stuffy; too pedantic.*****

    Why is a semicolon used In the second sentence?

    It is an error. It should be a comma.
