Just Musing…

As I was listening to the news a couple of days ago, the newscaster said,
“The several million dollar homes in that area are….”

It is clear that it has to be “…the several-million-dollar homes…” because of the word “the.” Without the word “the,” it could go either way, I think.

…several million-dollar homes…
…several-million-dollar homes…

Happy punctuating!
