    through a/the/- hyphen

    I tried to help a man in WordReference forum, but I didn't know how to write it correctly.

    I wrote: Note that we don't hyphen any words with "ли". We write them as two separated words. "Могу ли я" is correct writing. (I used "hyphen" as a verb, though it seemed strange for me.)
    How can I write it correctly in this way: Note that we don't write "ли" through the/a/- hyphen. We wrtie all words with "ли" as two separated words. "Могу ли я" is correct writing.

    I'm not sure about an article. I wanted to write "the" automaticallly,
    unconsciously, but I wasn't sure whether it was correct. Can you help me?

    Thanks in advance.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: through a/the/- hyphen

    We don't write it with a hyphen. We don't hyphenate it. ("Hyphenate" is the verb you were looking for.)
