I did thorough and extensive research on this topic and was wondering whether or not you'd agree with my proposed bulleted exemplars below. In Edward D. Johnson’s book The Handbook of Good English, he says: “Note that 'I bought ten- to twenty-year bonds' is wrong, because the compound is meant to indicate a range of bond maturities, not two separate bond categories, and it should be unified rather than suspended": I bought ten-to-twenty-year bonds. The Copyeditor’s Handbook, by Amy Einsohn, subscribes to this notion: (Note: In a phrase like ten-to-fifteen-minute traffic delays, the ten to fifteen constitutes a unit—an approximation of length of the backup—and it is therefore not a suspended compound. Correct: ten-to-fifteen-minute traffic delays Incorrect: ten- to fifteen-minute traffic delays All this said, and based on the two sources above, would you concur that the examples below are correct? Sorry for the extensive list. • a 15-to-20-year prison term • a group of 10-to-15-year-olds • 10-to-15-year-old athletes • 20-to-30-pound weight loss • 7-to-15-foot pieces of plywood • 75-to-80-cent-a-week raises • $10-million-to-$20-million-per-year job • $100,000-to-$120,000-a-year savings • a seven-to-ten-day process • a two-to-three-hour rain delay • a five-to-ten-minute explication • a five-to-seven-year term • a 15-to-20-percent-a-year savings • a 15-to-20-foot hole • a three-to-five-mile hike •a 1-to-3-inch-deep laceration •a five-to-ten-degree temperature difference •a four-to-seven-month hiatus •25-to-45-minute intervals •a seven-to-twelve-pound baby •a 150-to-200-calorie meal Do you agree, then, based on the two sources above, that all bulleted examples are correct? No suggested recasts, please. ...and, the only time a compound is truly suspended is when we use 'and' or 'or', as in: 25- and 30-year mortgages (only two types of mortgage durations are meant here). 5- or 10-year leases (same logic) ...yes or no to the 2 examples (and logic) above? Thank you.
