The Hyphen





The hyphen is used to join compound words; to mark the division of a

word too long to go entirely into one line; to separate the syllables of

words in order to show pronunciation; as a leader in tabular work. For

this last purpose the period is to be preferred to any other mark in

use. Tabular work without leaders is obscure and therefore

objectionable.
