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

???

  • English -

    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.

  • English -

    Hyphenate age-group, but not any others.

  • English -

    so age-group or no ?

  • English -

    Let's check a dictionary.

  • English -

    I believe it makes a difference whether you use it as a noun or an adjective.

    Examples:

    Sandy attends a preschool with her age group.

    The materials used in that school are age-group appropriate.
