Antisemitism or anti-Semitism
Which one is correct? Which one is more correct in the United States?
I prefer the second one, but either is ok, look up wikipedia. is has the first
google and you find they use both.
woo! shortest post ever ^^
Why do you prefer the second one?
antisemitism vs. anti-Semitism
hm, strange. google check is saying the first is correct. haha
I like the second one because it is easier see how it is pronounced. antisemitism looks like a strange word, but I guess it works. choose whatever you want. >_<
Semite is a proper noun, so you need a hyphen to make it possible to capitalize it.
Second one. The hyphen emphasizes the against aspect of it .
I really think it should be the first one because I have seen printed texts that say "antisemitism," however Microsoft word check usually makes it "anti-semitism". The funny thing is Firefox word check allows "antisemitism" but not "anti-semitism". I would say it's a stylistic choice, because sometimes you might not want that random dash in your writing since it might interrupt fluency.
I read some articles by people who study the history of Judaism, and they write anti-Semitism... so, that is how I write it, because it is appropriate to capitalize "Semite."
