Ich habe hier einen Satz, in dem "in situ medieval structures" vorkommt. Ist das so ok, oder ist "in-situ medieval structures" besser.
Ich plädiere für den Bindestrich.
I'm against it.
Edit: though I think I might prefer "medieval structures in situ"... I would need to see more of the sentence to be sure.
Hmmm ... in den Online-Ausgaben der gerade eingesehenen Wöbü von Longman, MM, OLD, Collins, MW, Cambridge gibt es nirgends einen Bindestrich bei "in situ" ...
Im Kontext: While the content of these three in-situ medieval structures have been sieved systematically, ...
Ich finde "in-situ" durchaus gebindestricht, z.B.:
Although not fully excavated the presence of a potentially in-situ structure suggests this was part of a much larger saltern site;
This in-situ structure was reproduced in the laboratory by creating vertical holes in the compacted samples, as will be explained below.
Der Bindestrich erleichtert das Lesen und vermeidet, dass man gedanklich "three in" zusammen liest.
I vote for the hyphen. In-situ is like a compound adjective here, so it should have a hyphen. (But not this is not the case in AE procrastinator's re-arranged phrase, so there it is correct not to have the hyphen.)
BTW, your context sentence in #4 should either have contents ... have or content ... has.
#3 It would only have a hyphen (if at all) when used as an adjective in front of a noun. You'd only see that in a dictionary entry in the "examples" section.
I see some style guides saying it should be hyphenated, and others saying it should be italicised and not hyphenated in that position. Up to you.
Danke. Ich werde nachfragen, ob's der Autor lieber mit Bindestrich oder kursiv haben möchte.
amw, ja, das war mein Fehler beim hastigen Abtippen. Der Autor hatte das richtig.
Hm. Maybe it depends on whether you think of "in situ" as a foreign word in English or not? Still, I find either version acceptable, with a slight preference for the no hyphen. I don't think I would delete the hyphen if I were editing the text, but I definitely wouldn't insert one (unless my style guide told me to).
