from what i've seen it does something like this -- but not really.
eh close enough
like a comma?
that's the problem
I can't distinguish it from a comma
there are specific cases where you know the dash is better than the comma
that's what I'll try to work on
yeah, like the year thingo
but the directions, an that other wan, comma youd seem sufficient
is there any rule?
An em dash is most often used to indicate a pause in a sentence. It's stronger than a comma, but weaker than a period or semicolon.
a longer comma lmao
I never use EM dashes when I write formally
it's too risky
this was a stupid question
also that sate year, a to would be better, otherwise it sounds weird saying it out loud?
I can't answer your question lmao I have the same ones
I'm trying to learn it eventually
saying you lived here from 2009 long pause 2019
I think its just preference at this point?
ye but the SAT is nitpicky
for the question I got wrong I selected a semicolon
What do those arses say then?
it does make sense
the dash would be the only selection that doesn't repeat something already stated in the sentence
look at box 29
thats retarded lmao
ye I initially ruled out A and C
Is that what you got a D for, the 29 missing a em dash thingo?
ye I picked D when the answer was B, an EM dash
