  1. Can’t you imagine the excitement felt by the person who discovered the semi-colon!! 😉

    Quick takeaway: “the pseudessive is used more specifically to express things that might have been true, were it not for facts or beliefs which have subsequently been found to be false”
    Examples:
    1. US President Obama is not a US citizen.
    2. US Senator Graham is a combat veteran.
    3. The Alberta oil sands industry is environmentally neutral.
    4. Global warming is a myth.
