Sometimes in a print book, a word will be split between two pages, connected with a hyphen. If this happens, merge the two halves of the word together, and place the now-whole word at the end of the first page, along with any punctuation immediately following it.

Example:

   The boy walked through a dark, forbidding forest. He could hear all sorts of ani-

   ---------------------page break-----------------

   mals around him but he couldn't see any.

 

What it should look like after it has been proofread:

   The boy walked through a dark, forbidding forest. He could hear all sorts of animals

   ---------------------page break-----------------

   around him but he couldn't see any.
