Grammar question: How to treat hyphenated prefixes when used in a series.
posted by Cash4Lead to Writing & Language (4 answers total)
I'm editing a sentence (AP style) that refers to a series of things with prefixes, and the prefixes themselves are arranged serially. That is, it reads, "land-, sea- and air-based thingamajigs." (Not the actual sentence since the document is confidential, but you get the idea.) Is this the correct way to arrange this series?
