    Unit 2-5 Horoscopes

    How should I read "Unit 2-5 Horoscopes"?
    Unit two hyphen five Horoscopes or Unit two dash five Horoscopes?

    It depends. What are you trying to do? This doesn't make sense to me.

    If I were asking my class to open their books at this unit, I would probably say, "Unit/Chapter/etc two five (tiny pause) 'Horoscopes'".

    If I were writing an address, I'd write: "Unit 2, 5 Horoscopes Lane, London."
    But I'd decide what I was trying to do before I did it - which was the intention of my question.
