1. Tell me how to differentiate between the words "toward" and "towards."

2. Is the sentence I got from the post right?

To check my guesses up, I have three others sentences in such way.

3. I know the sentence below is right but I have this proclivity toward wanting to put the word "of" in the spot indicated, is it wrong to put the "of" there?

If you live in the suburbs, you live in an area of house, outside (of????) the centre of a large town.

4. I use this sign as the hyphen to join words together, "--" ,and can I use the same sign to show that the rest of a word is on the next line?

1. I'm actually not certain how to instruct you on that.

2. To double-check my guesses, i have three sentences in the same way

3. If you live in the suburbs, you live in a residential area outside the center of town (outside of downtown)

4. When joining two words together with a hypen, a single hypen is used, "-", and when at the end of a sentence, if a word may trail to the next line, a hypen is used to indicate that the two sections are part of a single word.
Thank you.

My key board doesn't seem to have the "hyphen" key, that's why I am using the sign "--" as a hyphen to join the words together but my dilemma is what should I use to note the same hyphen but in the case of indicating two sections are part of a single word? Help.

Also, what other words would you use for the word in bold? denote?

Hi Believer, are you giving up using real 'hyphens' forever instead of buying a new keyboard?

I think: -

3. If you live in the suburbs, which means you live in the outer area of town.
