有關於英文的dash符號之意思

像常常一個句子的詞語有dash符號,那他代表的是什麼意思呢???ex:a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head........那所組成的詞語又有分什麼詞性嗎或是dash的詞可不可以用複數形態??

謝謝各位聰明的大大

    dash連接二個單字將之變成複合名詞

    a fifty-dollar haircut 如果不加dash的話, 就該講成 fifty dollars' hair cut ﹝50元的剪髮﹞不加dash的話,dollar就要加"s"而變成複數,這樣說其實也行,但是加了dash是把二個字合成一個名詞,用在句中是要加強haircut的語氣,一個剪髮要50元,如果fifty dollars' hair cut 就比較平淡﹝50塊錢的剪髮﹞

    dash連接起來的詞就不需要用到複數形態

    Actually, it's a "hyphen" you guys are talking about.

    A "dash" is twice as long as a hyphen and it functions differently.

    A hyphen is 連字號 and a dash is 破折號 in Chinese.
