Occur age group after age group and repeat time after time
Should there by any dashes or hyphens here?
should it be like:
occur age-group after age-group and repeat time-after-time
No hyphens should be used in these constructions.
You can look up these words in a dictionary -- such as Dictionary.com -- to find the correct spelling/hyphenation.
Hyphenate age-group, but not any others.
so age-group or no ?
Let's check a dictionary.
I believe it makes a difference whether you use it as a noun or an adjective.
Sandy attends a preschool with her age group.
The materials used in that school are age-group appropriate.
