Actually used to join related words. Not to be confused with an em dash, or a fucking period.

See, 14-year old girls confuse hyphens with periods and commas. They use it to end a sentence and/or split clauses; not even to indicate interruption.
Correct usage: People say it's a myth that the average American speaks 0.7 languages fluently, but with TikTok girls' bull-fuckery, it sounds about right.

Incorrect Usage: I disagree-

Used in IM conversations to indicate the presence of a letter in a typed word that does not belong and should be omitted. This is a quick alternative to using the full correction, which is preceded by a *.

Often, the word that the erroneous letter appeared in is not indicated by the typer, leaving a bit of guesswork for the reader. However '-' should generally be limited for use only where minor typographical errors have occured to avoid this potential confusion.
Correct usage..
Guy: Hey, did you watch that showq?
Guy: -q

Incorrect usage..
Dude: Yeah, it was awsesmomet
Dude: -s
Dude: -m
Dude: -t
Guy: Awesome, perhaps?

a hyphen. it's just a mother-fucking hyphen. You use it with compound words and preceded by "oft-" if you're feeling fancy.
