    Default on look-out?

    Is this correct?

    Leonís men stayed where they were hiding, on look-out.

    Also should it have a hyphen, as in look-out?

    Thanks!

    No hyphen needed. As a noun, meaning a person who is on watch or the state of being on watch, it's one word - lookout.

    As a verb it would be 2 words: Look out for thieves.
