    El guion del medio puede ser hyphen si es corto (-) si es largo () es dash (raya en castellano).

    El guion bajo es underscore.

    Wikipedia: The underscore [ _ ] (also called underbar, understrike, low line, or low dash)...

    Para la pronunciación puedes oirla en Underscore - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    I thought guión was hyphen, guión medio was dash, and guión bajo was underscore.

    Well, the problem is that in traditional Spanish grammar there is no such thing as guion medio nor guion bajo. But, not wanting to get into a different discussion, I accepted PIM's guion medio term (which you will also find in many sites on the net) for the sake of giving her a quick answer to her question.

    According to the RAE's signos ortográficos there are only two:

    Guion (-)= hyphen
    Raya () = dash

    Underscore is the old typewriter character to underline words, which took other uses with computers and word processors, and is not considered a signo ortográfico.


    Also, no more accent mark in guion, believe or not, according to the new RAE modifications issued Dec. 2010. Will look for the link to those modifications and post it here sometime.

    No accent? It should be one syllable? Interesting.
    Happy Holidays, Cotty!
