"I'm guessing there is some wrong semicolon, or something. Perhaps
there is a improper space before a dot, or something? Seems an old
fashioned language, all super fussy about punctionation."

Fortunately there are a small number of rules to the Turtle syntax.
Syntax preferences will always vary though in any population.
Anyway...

Some tools that have helped me:

and "n3-mode" for emacs works well for Turtle too. Syntax coloring, etc.

Spaces before periods and semi-colons seems to be accepted convention,
and certainly is valid.
