Remember This at Year-End


OK, you’ve got four months to remember this.

In December, when people are looking back on the year that was, see how many times you read the terms year end and year-end.

Only the hyphenated one is correct (I know, the headline gave it away).

If you see year end, keep in mind that by writing it this way, one means that the word year is an adjective describing the word end.

And I’ve never seen an end described as a year. Tight, yes. Split, yes. Year, no.

Until next time! Use the right words!
