11.6 Dividing Short-Form Words Between Lines [XVI.47.a]

The short form of a word can never be divided between lines. A division can be made only between a short form and a syllable addition. Never spell out a word that can be represented by a short form, even though it might be possible to write a portion of such a spelled out word on one line and the remainder on the next. Such division rarely saves space and it is preferable to preserve the normal braille appearance of the word. Examples:

imm-
ly
[not]im-
mly
un-
p(er)cvd
[not]unp(er)-
cvd
de-
dclg
[not]de-
cl(ar)(ing)
