Dashing & Spectacular

| 1 Comment

Truss describes how to use the dash and the hyphen in this chapters. But here's what I don't understand, she claims that the hyphen is barely used. I do not question her decision but I think it is the dash that is seldom used. Everyone hyphens everything nowadays. For goodness sake I saw a streetsign that had the words "train station" hyphened. I think we should stop ourselves from over hypenating the world!

I also see a lot of things hyphened. I cringe sometimes when I see people not useing punctuation properly. I guess it's just a pet peeve of mine. Pretty soon everything that is hyphened might start to make it into the American language. (Lets hope not).
