I'm hoping for guidance on several very similar situations, which I suspect are all meant to be punctuated and spaced differently.
How would you write someone stuttering out the word "you"? Here is my best guess:
“What do y-y-you want?”
That is, hyphens (not en or em dashes), and no spaces. Is this correct?
Starting over a sentence
How would you write someone starting over a sentence, i.e. "interrupting themself"? Here is my best guess:
“That’s— It’s more complicated than that.”
That is, em dash, but add a space after the em dash, since it's kind of functioning like a period. Also, the new sentence is capitalized. Is this correct?
(I'm mostly doubting myself on the space.)
This gets tricky, because this is kind of like a stutter, but also kind of like the last example, so I'm confused:
“Who—who are the other candidates?”
Have to—have to make it worth it.
“Saying that isn’t legally binding,” she frowned, again, “and it—it’s not that.”
Here I went with em dash, no space, and lowercasing the repeated fragment. What do you think? Do these three examples even belong in the same category?
