    Should " Spiderman" be "Spider-Man".

    What are examples to use -.

    I'm a happy-go-lucky guy or a " happy go lucky guy"? Do both work?

    Please use a - in a sentence. Thanks. :)

    Also, sometimes commas can be inserted , or not, in the same sentence, and both can sometimes be correct grammar , right?

    Like, in that sentence, did I necessarily need a comma before right?

    Do you concur? :)

    I like to use dashes to set off a part of a sentence - especially if it's a long sentence - from the rest, where others might use a comma.

    Spiderman doesn't need a hyphen. Happy-go-lucky benefits from them.

    Note that there is a distinction between dashes and hyphens: "The dash is often used after an independent clause. The hyphen, on the other hand, is used to join two words together like yellow-green. It usually does not have a space between the words. Also, the dash tends to be slightly longer than the hyphen, and usually would have spaces before and after the symbol." I prefer the shorter hyphen when using dashes as you saw above for aesthetic purposes.
