Hold the Hyphen: Daydreaming


Ethan writes:
Hi Snarky. It's the end of the first quarter and I need to bump up my English grade. My teacher says he'll give extra credit for finding examples of grammar and punctuation errors in magazines and newspapers. I think the hyphen in this headline is a mistake. Yes?
 
Yes, Ethan. Go ahead and hand it in.

Where does this ad go wrong? It puts an unnecessary hyphen in 'daydreaming', which is a compound word.

Quick rule:
  • Compound words combine two or more words but function as a single unit. While some compounds are not hyphenated (e.g., daydream, flowerpot, keyboard), others are (e.g., merry-go-round, mother-in-law).

Correction:
  • Daydreaming About Ski Season?

  2. Writing takes up quite a bit of time. If you have to send out many emails, reports, or other correspondences, you want them to be accurate and well written, but you don't want to spend your whole day going over everything, looking for corrections. See more punctuation software

    We learn to talk from our caregivers. If we are brought up with the help of a nanny, we will often grasp their way of speaking. This can include improper usage of grammar or even the utterance of the wrong words. No one actually pays heed to grammar once they get it done in the school.
