Don’t confuse a dash with a hyphen (see Hyphens). Dashes are longer than hyphens.
There are two types of dashes: the en dash and the em dash.
The en dash is based on the size of an uppercase N, and the em dash is based on the size of an uppercase M.
So the em dash is longer than the en dash.
- hyphen
– en dash
— em dash
The en dash is a linking device that implies to or and. one to five = 1–5
The em dash is a separating device. It signals a pause slightly longer than a comma, or it interrupts the sentence for a purposeful digression. "I would say this — erm — this is good."

(DE)

Im Deutschen wird nur ein dem en-Dash entsprechendes Zeichen verwendet. Dies ist das typografisch richtige Zeichen für einen Gedankenstrich, der sogenannte Halbgeviertstrich. Sie können den Halbgeviertstrich vereinfachend auch als typographisches Minuszeichen verwenden.
Den em-Dash gibt es im Deutschen nicht.
Setzen Sie im Deutschen bei der Verwendung des en-Dashs als Gedankenstrich immer jeweils ein Leerzeichen vor und nach den Strich.
z.B.: Der Umgang mit Dashes ist einfach – zumindest im Vergleich zur Verwendung von Kommas.

Setzen Sie bei der Verwendung des en-Dashs als Minuszeichen kein Leerzeichen vor und nach den Strich.
z.B.: Die Berechnung lautet: 10–3=7.

Hyphen: - (= Alt + 45)
Dash: – (= Alt + 0150)

Rubbish!
What is Neil Young trying to tell us with this album?
Musically without any value, sketches that - maybe - could have turned into something.
Before you could get used to a track (I'm deliberately NOT using the term "song"!), it is over again... See full review

posted a comment on Lou Reed - Magic And Loss. 8 months ago
Well, I was only talking about the musixal aspect! I'm no native English speaker,which makes it harder to listen to the music AND understand the lyrics.
Re the voice of Jimmy Scott: that's a question of personal taste.

posted a review of Ian McLagan - Troublemaker. 9 months ago
Could've been a better album when not Ian McLagan would've made the vocals, but Ronnie Lane and/or Rod Stewart.
Ian wasn't the best singer...
Best track: "Little Troublemaker".
