Just a Reminder About That Hyphen…

When hyphenating a prefix to a compound noun that is separate words and is being used as an adjective, hyphenate the prefix to the first word of the compound noun.

…pre-social security days…
…anti-money laundering scheme…
…post-National Weather Service announcement…

Happy punctuating!
