The Hyphen

Hyphens are used both in spelling and in punctuation. When it is used as punctuation, it is not part of a word or phrase. There are four general ways the hyphen can be used as punctuation:

  • Breaking a word at the end of a line

  • Combining words that form a compound adjective

  • Acting as a substitute for a repeated word

  • Indicating special pronunciations
