    Hyphenated words

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I am writing our organisation's annual report and am unclear on the correct use of hyphenating words such as "...on-site visits."

    I would appreciate your views on this.
    Kind regards

    Re: Hyphenated words

    Hi,

    When a compound word, such as 'on-site', functions in a sentence as an adjective or an adverb, it is hyphenated.
