} The Merriam Webster Dictionary and the American Heritage Dictionary
} both disagree with you. I tend to believe them.
The Gage Canadian Dictionary lists it with the "-" and has the
version without the "-" as an alternative spelling, so I suppose it
could be one of those silly Americanisms. It also lists "coop" and
"co-op" as seperate words with seperate pronunciations (the latter
being slang for "co-operative"). I checked dictionary.com for both
spellings. According to it, the American Heritage Dictionary only has
the first, but Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary has both. I
suppose whether the original author accepts the "correction" depends on
where he lives and whether he uses American spellings.
