Iím unsure on the use of the semi-colon. In the following sentence, semi-colons are used instead of commas to separate the different traits:
-- They classified platypus as a mammal because of the following traits: it is warm-blooded; it has fur; its young are fed with milk from the mother.
Would it be incorrect if I use commas instead of semi-colon in this context?
Thank you for teaching me
The conjunction 'and' is absent from the original sentence, so would it be a comma splice if commas were used without 'and'? That's what I thought when I wrote the post deleted by Rover_KE.
