definition of the word hyphen

by the Wiktionnary

From Late Latin, from Ancient Greek ὑφέν.

Singular
hyphen

Plural
hyphens

hyphen (plural hyphens)

  1. Symbol "-", typically used to join two related words to form a compound noun, or to indicate that a word has been split at the end of a line.

Because the original symbol "-" (technically the hyphen-minus) covered usages aside from hyphenation there have been additional subsequent symbols created for hyphenation needs. They include the "" (hyphen), (non-breaking hyphen) and the non-visible soft hyphen.
