    Wink spelling question

    Hi!
    I have a question. How do you spell the space? When you are in a spelling bee and you have a compound word as: fishing rod.
    Is it correct to say "space"?
    And if you spell teddy-bear. Is it correct to say hyphen?

    I appreciate your help.
    Thanks.
