3 comments on “When and When Not to Hyphenate Words – Nouns

    • Hyphens are my weakness, but Grammarly has an easy-to-understand article here: https://www.grammarly.com/blog/hyphen/ The best I can tell, problem-solving and decision making are only hyphenated in certain sentence structures. For example, saying “He has good decision-making skills” includes a hyphen, but saying “He has some decision making to do” does not.
