Hyphenation
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱:٠٧ ‎ب.ظ روز ۱۳٩۱/٢/۱۳
 


Sometimes we need to split (break) a word at the end of a line, for example:

 

In the above example we have split the word "convenient". We have done this by inserting a hyphen (-) between "conven" and "ient". We have hyphenated "convenient".

In such cases, it is important to insert the hyphen in an appropriate position, that is, between syllables.

Since we insert the hyphen between syllables, it follows that we cannot hyphenate a single-syllable word.

We cannot hyphenate the single-syllable word "friend", for example, but we can hyphenate the three-syllable word "convenient" as "con-venient" or "conven-ient".

To hyphenate correctly, it helps to understand syllables. Every word is made from syllables. Each word has one, two, three or more syllables, as shown in the following chart.

Notice that (with a few rare exceptions) every syllable contains at least one vowel (a, e, i, o or u) or vowel sound.
