One of the things that keeps bothering me while using Google's products such as Google Docs, Google Slides, or search engine is the red line under words that include hyphen (e.g. co-operate, broken-hearted...etc).
I do know the usage of hyphen and I do prefer to use it for the purpose of clarification but I can't figure out why google always keeps suggesting to remove it (i.e. cooperate, brokenhearted...etc).
- Does it have anything to do with rhetoric?
- Did the hyphen become non-standard?
- Did it become old-fashioned?
