for a strong, fast pick-me-up
How you write “proof reading” can tell you about your writing style.
Do you write proofreading as one word – or do you write proof reading as two separate words?
Or when you write proof-reading – do you use a hyphen that combines the words in “separate chunks” – a combination that’s easy to read at speed?
And what does proof-reading have to do with U-boats? Or should that be Uboats or U Boats?
I’m definitely a hyphen-user ( “The Hypen-ator” – said in an “Arnie” voice) – even though the other two forms are acceptable!
My reasoning is that the hyphen makes it easier for a reader to read at speed. Modern readers often skim and scan – especially on-line and on their mobile devices.
The old-school style is to not join the words together.
The modern style is to combine the words as one word.
