Sometimes you will write a list that contains items that are part of a single sentence, for instance:
Isaac is looking for the ideal car that has
• great fuel economy;
• room for five passengers;
• sporty styling;
• safe handling;
• a comfortable ride.
— Notice that all the items except the last are followed by a semicolon.
— The final item takes a period.
— Don’t put a colon after the last word of the introductory part of the sentence.
— You do not need the word “and” between the last and the penultimate item.
— In addition, don’t capitalize each item, because they are all continuations of the first part of the sentence about Isaac.
