Self-Service or Self Service?
I am finding "self service" and "self-service" used interchangably. What is grammatically correct? Example: I use a self-service option to change my phone number on a website.
Example: We have provided you with these self service options in one convenient location.
When the phrase is used in front of a noun (like "options"), it acts as a compound modifier, so you need the hyphen: "self-service options."
When it's not used in front of a noun, you don't need the hyphen. For instance: "I wanted some help, but the gas station only offered self service."
