|English term or phrase: highly sought-after|
|In the expression "highly sought-after" product, can anyone give me the grammar rule (Canada) determining where the hyphen should be. My instinct is to put it between "sought" and "after", but I cannot find a grammar reference to back this up. I'd appreciate any help...|
I looked it up in Longman's Dictionary Of Contemporary English.
Sought-after adj wanted by a lot of people but rare or difficult to get: much/highly sought-after
Bryce became a much sought-after defense laywer.
Hope this helps!
