What is a Dash?

Well first of all, if you have no clue as to what a dash is. Get out of here and go back to the first grade. Now then, a Dash is one of many things, but right now we are talking about the one you use in writing and is on the keyboard of a computer.



It is separated into two types of Dashes, the En Dash and the Em Dash.


The En Dash is a little longer then a Hyphen, you could use it for a period of time when you would use to.
