Homework Help: english

Posted by MARIE on Thursday, July 3, 2014 at 2:41pm.

Hey everybody,

I have a question about compounds...
I think I illustrate it to you best with an example:

in "an off-campus apartment"
off-campus is written with a hyphen
BUT in "The apartment is off campus" we wirte it without an campus.

why is it that way?
I read that in 99% of all cases we use the hyphen when the adjectiv compound is before the noun. Is there a rule how to handle it when the compound is behind the noun?

I hope someone can help me :)
Marie
