Chicago says no hyphens in 'African American,' 'Chinese American,' 'Italian American,' 'Latin American,' 'Mexican American,' etc., when they serve as nouns or adjectives. I was taught: African-American culture (the adjective is hyphenated) He is African-American. (hyphenated in predicative position) But: He is an African American. (noun; no hyphens) He is an African-American male. (phrasal adjective; use hyphen) Do you agree with the punctuation in my three bulleted examples? Also, there's never a hyphen in 'American Indian / Native American' when each serves as a noun or an adjective, correct? Do you agree with my examples below (that is, no hyphens ever in the noun and adjectival forms of 'American Indian' and 'Native American')? He is an American Indian. He is American Indian. American Indian customs He is a Native American. He is Native American. Native American beliefs Do you agree with my punctuation in all italicized, bolded examples? Thank you kindly.
