Which to choose? Pickup vs. pick-up vs. pick up

How the Kids-1830603_1920word is spelled depends on which part of speech it is (See, you should have paid attention in junior high English class after all!).

“Pickup” is used when you have a noun or are referring to a thing, as in “Jacob drive his pickup to the prom” or “Sophia found that drinking a can of soda gave her a real pickup.”

“Pick-up” is an adjective that describes something, as in “Mason’s pick-up line surprisingly worked.” In this case, “pick-up” describes what kind of line it is.

“Pick up” is a verb, which shows that someone is “doing something,” as in “Pick up some milk on your way home tonight!”

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Madison, Wisconsin, or a small town like Possum Grape, Arkansas, I can provide that second eye.
