Oh dear.I don't think "thankyou" (no space or hyphen) is ever acceptable as proper English, in any English-speaking culture.
I don't think "thankyou" (no space or hyphen) is ever acceptable as proper English, in any English-speaking culture. It is definitely not.
Two words with space between: A phrase expressing gratitude.
Hyphenated: An adjective describing something that expresses gratitude.
No, quillerbee. It is not to do with saying things fast. I would punctuate that way if that was said slowly. As I said earlier, the hyphens tells me about the structure of the noun phrase, that the head noun is modified by a clause. Would you not use the hyphen in my examples in Post 17?Hi peter, I don't see the connection with "I'm-not-bothered moments". If I am missing something, I would like to know, but just seems like you are saying things fast, so you put a hyphen.
