Don't we have to hyphenate 'four' and 'year', Bev?

Why Torsten, is it not like 'three-year-old child' and 'five-day visit'? If not, please explain.

Many native speakers wouldn't hyphenate those examples either. Although it's a traditional, formal standard to use the hyphen, the alternative without the hyphen is generally accepted in modern English.

This is a new piece of information for me. Thanks a lot, Bev. However, I wonder why Torsten has ignored my request for clarification especially when I have raised my doubt with examples.

Possibly because I happened to see your request and answer it first!

That's right, I worked on a couple of blog posts yesterday so I'm very grateful we have Bev.

Good evening Sir I have a question why it is showing the "record" and " edit" when I send some posts Instead of "answer" and "quote"?

Your own posts should always display a 'record' and 'edit' button as well as an 'answer' and 'quote' button.
As you cannot record in someone else's posts, other people's posts will not have this function.

Neither is correct.

and if you are a fourth year student, neither of those would apply!
