Use semicolons instead of commas when the items are a series are particularly long; individual items in the series are set off by a commas and/or a conjunction; or when the items in your series are a series themselves.

  • Are a series unto themselves
  • Are particularly long
  • Are themselves set off by commas
  • Contain a conjunction
