Prefixes and Suffixes

Margie Wakeman Wells The Hyphen Leave a Comment

The rule is that prefixes and suffixes are added on and made a solid word.

However, when the word that has a prefix or suffix is more than one word, the prefix or suffix is attached with a hyphen.

…time frame-wise…
…pre-high school…
…social security-like…

Happy punctuating!
