Language Tip 29 (2014-15)

Consider these structures. Which is correct?

1) “I was involved in a six year long fan relationship with a bad football team.”
2) “I was involved in a six-year long fan relationship with a bad football team.”
3) “I was involved in a six-year-long fan relationship with a bad football team.”

The winner is option 3, the one with all the hyphens.

This, however, is snappier (since “year” already indicates duration or long-ness).

“I was involved in a six-year fan relationship with a bad football team.”
