A Word Or Words? These kind of words makes me a little bit confusing. Is this one word or words: *out-of-the-country *out-of-place *follow-up *check-up *make-up *pro-active And such others. Thanks in advance for answering! :)

Hyphenated words such as 'check-up', can be considered as a 'single' word. I think it would be reasonable to call 'check-up' or 'follow-up' a word, for example. 'Make-up' is certainly a word, and is sometimes not even hyphenated. 'Out of place' for example, is not hyphenated, so it is a phrase.
