Do you ever wonder about hypens?

Which phrases should be hyphenated and which shouldn’t? A very common question for many people!

To help, any two-word phrase that describes a noun, as in is used as an adjective, should be hyphenated, unless the word ends in -ly.

For example:

  • This is the best-looking piece in this display.
  • She is the best-educated person here.
  • That is a very water-hungry plant.
  • The elderly looking woman wasn’t arrested.
