quick tip: multi

Did you know that when you add the prefix “multi” to a word, you don’t need to use a hyphen? I learned this back in my Country Weekly days, when we were forever reporting on albums going multiplatinum. (Back in the day when people actually bought CDs.)

The one exception: If you want to add multi to a word that begins with “i” you need the hyphen, e.g. multi-instrumentalist.
