Em’s and En’s

The Hyphen (-) is the shortest of the three lines and should not be referred to as a dash. It’s purpose is to connect broken words at the end of a sentence or roots and affixes such as co-worker.

En dash (–) is the width of the letter n. The purpose of the en dash is to show length or represent the word “to”. An example can be (June 2nd–10th)

Em dash (—) is the width of the letter m. This dash is used to show a thought in a sentence. An example of this could be (If I was there—and thank god i’m not). All of these can be and are commonly confused in type and are actually pretty important.
