When do You Use a Hyphen?

A hypen is used to join two words that would otherwise be separate for clarity. Example: The aid worker(aid-worker) was very tired. Hyphens are used to write out fractions (one-third, three-sixteenths) and words which have the prefix anti and non (anti-alien or non-payment). When hyphenating words with the prefix anti and non keep in mind there are some which do not follow this rule, such as antiseptic and nonstop. To find more information click here:
