  1. Blog The short term used for a web log. Entries or posts that chronologically note daily, weekly or monthly events and ideas.

There’s 9 Ways to Skin a Cat, But 3 Dashes Can Do You In!

Hyphens, n dashes, m dashes ­­ – Oh My! The English language and its rules of grammar can drive even the most fastidious and fussy writer a little batty! The thing to remember here is that there’s more leniency in today’s writing than ever before. Having said this, we have prepared a very simple primer for you to comprehend the dashes and their duties when writing.

Hyphens and Compound Words

There are three types of compound words, one of which uses a hyphen:

  • Closed Compound – written as a single word (no hyphen needed) as in: database, football, lifelike, etc.
  • Hyphenated Compound – words grouped together as in: high-level executive, on-site administrator, one-day sales promotion, etc.
  • Open Compound – words that have meaning separately and together as in: school bus, blood pressure, peanut butter, etc.

Hyphens are also used when a word needs to be split apart at the end of the sentence, however, we’ll probably see less and less of this type of hyphen due to word processing and the automatic jump to the second line, keeping the word together, without a break. When hyphenating at the end of a sentence, though, the rule of thumb is to hyphenate according to syllable breaks. One-syllable words are never divided.
