Soft hyphen in lexeme lemma and form representation
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Currently, a lexeme lemma and a form representation can both contain a “soft hyphen” character (U+00AD; example lexeme). I’m not sure if we should allow this or not… on the one hand, it would be tempting to have soft hyphens in all lemmas and representations, so that they’re automatically wrapped nicely etc. – on the other hand, that’s not going to happen, and allowing an inconsistent state (some lexemes have soft hyphens, most don’t) is probably worse all around. I assume there will be dedicated statements for hyphenation, that should be enough.

Event Timeline

While I agree that there generally shouldn't be hyphens in Lemma and representation I am not sure we should prevent it. Thoughts from others?
