I have a request, too. Fragments. I know a sentence should have both a subject and verb - but is that necessarily always the case?
Which leads to another question - the use of dashes. I understand ellipticals, (isn't that these ... three dots are called?). But what is the proper use of the dash when a semicolon just doesn't seem to fit the bill?
