1. Hyphen's a dash which parts of words doth join; Or word to word, another word to coin. (Holmes)
2. Rule I.- The hyphen is used to connect the parts of a compound word; as, "Rose-tree"; "Fellow-student."
Rule II.- The hyphen is placed at the end of a line to show that a part of the last word has been carried over to the next line; as, "Caesar now leaves Gaul, crosses the Rubicon, and enters Italy."* (Waddy)
1. Purple-coloured. (Holmes)
|Notes||2.*Note.- In dividing words, syllables should never be broken, but the word should be separated by closing the line with a full syllable and a hyphen, and beginning the next line with the next syllable. (Waddy)|
