Is the regular hyphen used? Is the er contracted? Thanks, April 11, 2016 at 8:54 pm #26663 claurentModerator According to the updated formats (which is not yet posted anywhere) you would use the regular hyphen and contract the er. This also follows UEB guidelines. If you want to follow 2011 formats, you would use the regular hyphen and uncontract the er.
