A Learning Support on Hyphenation

OK, moving along on this cool, rainy morning in Southwestern Vermont, here is a learning support on hyphenation. Like several others I have posted here recently, this text comes from Paul Brians’ book, which, amazingly, he has made available at no cost on the Washington State University website, Common Errors in English Usage.

As Professor Brians points out, for a full exposition on the rules for hyphenation in English prose one really must consult The Chicago Manual of Style or something like it. This document does supply as much about hyphenation as the high-school, and perhaps even the college, writer needs to know.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
