Abstract

The dash is one of the most versatile punctuation marks. However, its very versatility makes it a mark to use with care. First, the dash should be distinguished from the hyphen. Al- though these two punctuation marks look similar, they differ both in form and function. In form, the dash is more elongated and does not appear as a separate symbol on most keyboards.
