Hyphens conundrum

  • December 7, 2012, 7:11pm

Sorry if I bump this after over half a decade has passed, but wouldn't the exception be that you don't hyphenate an adverb that seems to be part of an adjectival phrase? So not just the "-ly" ending, but any word that normally functions adverbially?

Also, what about comparatives and superlatives? better-known, most-used?
