Colons

A colon has three main uses:

  1. To introduce a quotation or direct speech.
    • e.g. The teacher was furious: ‘do your homework or you’re in trouble’, she says.
  2. To introduce a list.
    • e.g. I must remember to do the following: finish my homework, watch ‘Neighbours’ and walk the dog.
  3. To create emphasis.
    • e.g. There’s only one way I can describe that: rubbish.
