    Default Do you leave the hyphen for repetitive verbs in french?

    Hi,

    I've been having this doubt for quite a while now. Is there a rule for hyphens in french for verbs like for example "re-do, re-write, re-etc..."?
    I translated resubmision as "resoumission" and not "re-soumission", is that correct? Thanks!

    no hyphen in French for re-do, re-write, etc (refaire, réécrire)
    Trait d'union - Hyphen
    No space before or after
    A. Rapport : Indicate a link between words or parts of words.
    1. Compound words grand-mère, couvre-lit, quatre-vingts
    2. Hyphenated names Jean-Luc, Marie-Lise
    3. Imperative + pronoun aide-moi, fais-le, allez-y
    4. Inversion veux-tu, pouvez-vous, a-t-il
    5. Prefixes non-fumeur, quasi-collision
    6. Set expressions c'est-à-dire, vis-à-vis
    7. Suffixes celui-ci, cet homme-là
    B. Césure : Link the parts of a word that breaks at the end of a line such as Je veux aller à la bou-
    tique.

    Frank.

    Hi Frank, thanks a lot for clearing out those doubts I had. I will definitely paste your reply in my "favorites".
    I'll leave "resoumission"
    Merci

    Une petite astuce pour s'aider avec l'écriture pourrait être la prononciation du -s- s'il y en a.
