Transcript of "Hyphenation Rules As Per Chicago Manual (Nikhil Roshan)"

  1. 1. Hyphenation for Books Hyphens have several uses. a. Creating compound words, particularly modifiers before nouns (the well-known actor, my six-year-old daughter, the out-of-date curriculum. b. Writing numbers twenty-one to ninety-nine and fractions (five- eighths, one-fourth). c. Creating compounds on-the-fly for fly-by-night organizations. d. Adding certain prefixes to words: When a prefix comes before a capitalized word or the prefix is capitalized, use a hyphen (non- English, A-frame, I-formation). The prefixes self-, all-, and ex- nearly always require a hyphen (ex-husband, all-inclusive, self- control), and when the prefix ends with the same letter that begins the word, you will often use a hyphen (anti-intellectual, de-emphasize), but not always (unnatural, coordinate, cooperate). By all means, use a good dictionary when in doubt. There is no space between a hyphen and the character on either side ofit.
  2. 2. Suspended Compounds With a series of nearly identical compounds, we sometimes delay thefinal term of the final term until the last instance, allowing the hyphen to actas a kind of place holder, as in  The third- and fourth-grade teachers met with the parents.  Both full- and part-time employees will get raises this year.  We dont see many 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children around here. Be careful not to overuse this feature of the hyphen; readers have to waituntil that final instance to know what youre talking about, and that can beannoying.
