Placement of definitions[edit]

I'm not entirely sure where to put the individual definitions for the different types of uses of this character (hyphen, dash, minus sign). The definitions should at least be at the entries for the more specific characters, and so to avoid duplication I've just linked this character to the other ones. This is a similar case to ' (apostrophe). --Bequw¢τ 05:27, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Polysynthetic languages?[edit]

In analysis of the grammar of polysynthetic languages, typically "words" (spaceless strings) are divided into morphemes by hyphens, each of which receive a gloss (also hyphen-delimited), as on w:Greenlandic language. Is there a name for this sort of notation?__Gamren (talk) 12:33, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
