Why are dashes used in a paragraph? Hi, Could you tell me why the dashes are used in a paragraph. For example: But if you´re looking for atmosphere - the New York of artist, actors and writers - this is the place. Or The Habitat Hotel Built in 1999, offers inexpensive - but small - rooms with style. Near shopping.
