And where two or more hyphenated compound terms share the same word, you can use the shared word just once if you write the phrase like this: Long- and short-term financial planning.

The ICB removed its hyphen back in due to the Oxford English Dictionary spelling. The IAB hyphen it in their name, but not always in their text. I assume the ICB took the hyphen from the IAB when they were formed, but not sure. Google suggests the hyphen is wrong and asks if you would like to do the search again without the hyphen.

The AP Stylebook, the Buzzfeed Style Guide, The Economist Style Guide, and The Chicago Manual of Style all recommend hyphenating e-book, as well as most other “e” words such as e-reader and e-commerce. It's conceivable that over time, e-book may lose its hyphen.

Both the AP Stylebook and the Buzzfeed Style Guide already recommend spelling email without the hyphen. There are two commandments about this misunderstood punctuation mark.

First, hyphens must never be used interchangeably with dashes (see the Dashes section), which are noticeably longer. Second, there should not be spaces around hyphens. Incorrect: — people Incorrect: - people Correct: people Hyphens' main purpose is to glue words.

This is because the “ly” inherently signals that it’s modifying a word, meaning it would be redundant to also include a. Since the hyphenated up-to-date functions as an adjective, you will usually find it appearing before a noun.

(I've flagged the -up page of my AP Stylebook with a Post-It, because I check and double-check those entries so frequently.) The most common error, it seems, is the tendency to link a verb with the subsequent adverb with a hyphen.

"Perhaps someone who wants a two-part surname doesn't want to be seen as conventional and would not choose to hyphenate as a result. Where hyphens sit is not a massive issue - but I would say the. Today we’re discussing words with prefixes and whether we should hyphenate them.

The hyphen ‐ is a punctuation mark used to join words, and to separate syllables of a single word. The use of hyphens is called hyphenation. Non-hyphenated is an example of a hyphenated word. The hyphen should not be confused with dashes (figure dash ‒, en dash –, em dash —, Horizontal bar ―), which are longer and have different uses, or with the minus.

(It is intended for hurried journalists who may not have time to figure out which part of speech a certain -ly word is.) What is true for books is that adverbs ending in -ly are not hyphenated. To Hyphenate, or Not to Hyphenate Dedicated September Lexi, on Septem at PM Posted in Married Life 0 Hi there, I'm working on my first epub which I converted 3 to be published as a Kindle e-book; the book is mostly text with a few tables and images.
