Interesting Words - Hyphenation

The sixth edition of the Oxford English Dictionary has removed the hyphen from around 16,000 words.

(Some hyphenated words are now one, e.g. pigeon-hole is now pigeonhole and leap-frog is leapfrog.

In other cases the hyphen has been removed to form two words instead of one. Pot-belly shall henceforth be pot belly.)
