The hyphen is one of the most underused, one of the most incorrectly used, and one of the most important punctuation marks in writing.

It plays a role in showing ranges of numbers. It often incorrectly appears in words beginning with prefixes. And it is often totally missing from compound words, particularly the phrasal adjective.
