Post-hyphen Case

n.

Pronunciation

/poʊst-ˈhaɪfən keɪs/

Definition

The typographical case applied to the first letter of the second word of a hyphenated term where the first word of the term would normally be capitalized.

Post-hyphen Case is a style guide rule that will vary between projects but should be applied in all instances to ensure uniformity. For instance, a list containing “Anti-Freeze” and “Anti-Inflammatories” should consistently have either a capital or lower-case letter following the hyphen.
