Grammar in Action – Colons

As we covered in the post The Elusive Colon, a colon is used between two sentences when the second sentence is used to explain or illustrate the first. Additionally, if there are two similar sentences following the colon you would capitalize the first word of the sentence that follows the colon. However, if there is only one sentence following the colon you would not capitalize that first word of the second sentence.

Two sentences follow:

He was fully versed in VoiceXML: He studied it. He had a master's from an Ivy League school in the field.


One sentence follows:

He was fully versed in VoiceXML: he studied it.
