hi, are they the same " best spoken = most well-spoken " ?

Vidableek

This is a hard one; none of them sound right to me.

why the hell do you need the hyphen?

Tony

The superlative of "well" is "best," so "most well" really grates. I think the base form would be "well-spoken" rather than "well spoken," so the superlative should also be hyphenated.
